Pomona Man, Jailed On Sex Charges, Indicted In Weapons Case
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Pomona resident who previously was convicted of possessing child pornography was indicted Friday on unrelated charges.
Ky Cheng, an Army veteran, faces federal charges of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.
A statement issued by the Department of Justice says that officers allegedly uncovered 11 firearms, 46 high-capacity ammunition magazines, and 1,200 rounds of ammunition during a probation search of Cheng’s home in August.
In 2007, Cheng was convicted of possessing child pornography.
He is currently serving a three-year sentence in a county jail for violating the terms of his probation as they relate to a 2010 conviction for failing to register as a sex offender.
If convicted, Cheng faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
