Aaron Freeman, Frankeaswood Altenor indicted on federal firearms, abetting charges
A judge dismissed six counts of felon in possession of a firearm last week against Aaron William Freeman, 23, of Minot after a federal grand jury handed down an indictment on charges of possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon and aiding and abetting against Freeman and his co-defendant, Frankeaswood Altenor, 28, of Minot.
According to documents filed with the district court in Minot, Freeman was charged after his probation officer searched Freeman’s residence and found five handguns and a rifle in Freeman’s bedroom closet in July. Freeman had told authorities that a woman who is apparently associated with Michael Mays had dropped off the property at Freeman’s residence after Mays was arrested on July 6. Neither Mays or the woman has been charged in connection with that case and neither has been indicted in federal court, according to federal court records. Details in the federal case are sealed.
Freeman and Altenor are both in custody.
