Dolan Springs couple indicted after ATF raids

A Dolan Springs couple, whose residence was one of two homes raided by federal agents in November, were indicted Wednesday on federal charges of unlawful sales of firearms without a license.

A federal grand jury in Phoenix indicted Harold and Cheryl Fox after federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents raided their residence on Oak Drive Nov.

8 and confiscated more than 200 weapons.

The firearms included various caliber handguns, assault rifles and shotguns, U.S.

Department of Justice spokeswoman Jennie Larsen said.

According to the indictment, the Foxes allegedly engaged in selling firearms when they were not licensed gun dealers from April 11, 1999 through to the November raid.

The same day Fox's home was raided, ATF agents, the FBI and Mohave County sheriff's deputies also raided Claude Jack Langlois' Kingman gun shop, which doubles as his home, and confiscated more than 100 illegal weapons.

Langlois was also indicted Feb.

22 on federal charges of two counts of unlawful possession of machine guns and two counts of failing to complete a background check.

He was indicted for allegedly illegally possessing a Chinese-made AK47 machine gun and a Hesse Model H91 machine gun, Larson said.

Langlois, 35, is also charged with allegedly selling a .45-caliber pistol on April 22 to a buyer without first doing a mandatory background check.

On June 24, he also allegedly sold a .223 Bushmaster rifle without doing the background check, Larson said.

The Foxes, who have been released from custody, are scheduled to appear in federal court in Phoenix June 19.

Langlois' trial is expected to begin June 5 in federal court, Larson said.
