A Corpus Christi-area man has pleaded guilty to two weapons charges and will forfeit a grenade launcher and more than 11,000 rounds of ammunition.
Jeremy Charles Davenport of Odem will be sentenced March 9, 2011, and faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.
Davenport on Tuesday pleaded guilty to being in possession of an improvised explosive device when he was arrested Sept. 29 by Corpus Christi police in a domestic disturbance investigation. Davenport also pleaded guilty to being a drug user in possession of 19 firearms, including a machine gun.
Federal law bars the possession of firearms while being an unlawful user of a controlled substance. Davenport, who says he was using cocaine at the time of the incident, remains in custody.
