KINGMAN - For the second time in four months, convicted felon Nolan Gene Martin was arrested on weapons charges after Mohave County Sheriff's deputies found a loaded sawed-off shotgun in his car.

Deputies responded to a suspicious vehicle call at about 10 p.m. in the 4300 block of Able Drive. They spotted the car, a primer gray hatchback, as it turned onto Diagonal Way and pulled into a convenience store.

A record check revealed Martin's driver's license is suspended and that he has a history of felony convictions.

They seized the weapon, a .410 shotgun with a 12-inch barrel.

Martin, 36, of Kingman, was charged with felony possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a weapon by prohibited person and a misdemeanor charge of driving on a suspended license.

He has an apparent penchant for illegally modified shotguns.

Martin was one of four people arrested following a standoff with the Sheriff's Tactical Operations Unit on March 6.

Martin and another man, Manuel Ricardo Duvall, were in a home in the 4000 block of Irving Street with two children and their mother when deputies arrived to investigate a shots fired call.

Martin was allegedly armed with a sawed-off shotgun. The mother exited the home and the children were rescued as negotiators continued to talk to the men. Duvall exited and surrendered before the unit used tear gas to force Martin to do the same.

Martin had a fugitive from justice warrant issued for his arrest for an alleged armed robbery out of Henderson, Nev.

In 2009, he was arrested in Kingman on a felony warrant issued by the California Department of Corrections.

The comments just get better and better!!! The only discussion worth a fiddlers hoot. Why has this offender been allowed the freedom to walk the streets of "anywhere ville" after everything he has been accused of?

Please no comments that he's innocent until proven guilty crap!!! any judge with half a mind should have made "bail" insurmountable, End of story. You will have to give him credit where credit is due, he certainly knows the in and outs of our judicial system.

Article says: felony warrant issued by the California Department of Corrections. Doesn't that mean he probably moved here from perfect California?

@ Guns All Around
@ Lost In America on the right wing

Yeah...I figured you guys would chime in. So do you see how well getting rid of the second amendment would work to keep guns out of the hands of criminals?

@Lost In America on the right wing

"the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!"

Very funny. Is that all you've got? It is usually you gun-grabbers who girly-screech how the "militia" part means a govt. run militia (it does not mean that at all)

Now quickly name everyone here who has ever said that convicted felons should retain the right to have guns.

For accuracy, consider changing your name to "Delusional On The Left Wing"

Gun-grabbers. You always make me....

LOL

Ok...so the guy was arrested here in March on pretty serious charges, he also had a warrant from NV, and he's already out driving around?

What was he doing out of jail after all these arrests and warrants? When will he be out again?

Hey, cut him some slack. He was just exercising his 2nd amendment rights.

When he gets out he can go down to that soup kitchen they want to open downtown.

Gee - how many DAYS will he have to serve this time before he is out again living his happy felony lifestyle. Oh, wait. It says he is in legal trouble, not jail. Hey, no worries for him then.

Article comment by: Three Strikes?

Does AZ have a "Three strikes" law? This guy seems like a prime candidate to spend his life in prison for his felonious behavior. He has no place in society since he, obviously, can't learn the rules and fails to play well with others. Throw the book at him before there is a real tragedy.

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!
