I don’t think you will be surprised that the State has a file on this guy.
He’s an absconder from probation, and now has more charges to keep him in prison for a little while.

*In North Carolina, Short Barreled Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns, machine guns, and suppressors are considered “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”
