Felons indicted for possessing handguns

Posted: Thursday, November 11, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A federal grand jury has handed down indictments against felons who possessed handguns, including one man who spent more than two days impersonating a U.S. Army soldier and directing FBI agents at the scene of a fatal bridge crash.

The Fairbanks News-Miner reports that 37-year-old William James Clark was arrested in Deadhorse in August for allegedly posing as a soldier and showing a pistol to the director of the North Star Council on Aging director.

Police learned later that Clark has outstanding warrants in five different states and is a convicted con artist with a long history of impersonating Army officers.

Among the others charged with being felons in possession of firearms were two men who were found in Anchorage with guns and the equipment needed to print fake checks.
