MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Jefferson County man has been indicted on firearms charges involving “ghost guns.”

US Attorney William Ihlenfeld  says 28-year-old Brandon Michael Reckert, of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, was indicted this month on those firearms charges.

They include one count of “Engaging in the Business Without a License,” two counts of “Possession of Firearm by Prohibited Person,” one count of “Transfer of Firearm in Violation of National Firearm Act,” and one count of “Possession of Unregistered Firearm.” Reckert, a person prohibited from having firearms because of a prior conviction, is accused of having and selling privately manufactured firearms, also known as “ghost guns,” without a license from March until September 2022 in Berkeley and Jefferson Counties, and elsewhere.

Reckert faces up to five years of incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000 for the business charge, faces up to 15 years of incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000 for each possession charge, and he faces up to 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000 for the transfer charge.
