TEXARKANA, Texas -- A Red River County, Texas, man agreed to forfeit guns and tactical gear at a plea hearing in a drug case Thursday before a federal judge in Texarkana.
Casey Andrew Clark, 31, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Caroline Craven with Longview, Texas, lawyer David E. Moore and entered a plea of guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Hornok said at the hearing that Clark faces 10 years to life in federal prison at sentencing.
According to a factual basis filed Thursday in the case, Clark is responsible for more than 150 grams of ICE methamphetamine. He has agreed to forfeit a U.S. Marine Corps bullet proof vest and the following firearms he carried in furtherance of his drug trafficking activities: a Remington .243 Winchester bolt action rifle, a Henry Repeating Arms .22 caliber rifle, a Remington .22 caliber rifle, a Glock 9 mm handgun, a .410 caliber shotgun, a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, a Remington bolt action .22 caliber rifle, an Anderson Manufacturing AM-15, a Revelation 12-gauge shotgun and a Browning T-Bolt rifle, which had been reported as stolen to the Clarksville Police Department.
Clark's factual basis states that he was trafficking in methamphetamine in the Red River County area in March.
Clark will return to court for formal sentencing before U.S. District Judge Robert Schroeder III after the court has received a report including a recommendation for punishment under federal sentencing guidelines. Until then, Clark remains in federal custody.
