An elderly Belle resident caught with 81 guns at his home on Simmons Creek Road has admitted to being a felon in possession of firearms.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Dorsey Woolwine Jr., 63, pleaded guilty in Charleston to the federal firearm indictment.

Police had searched Woolwine's home and property in March 2012, seizing 28 guns, including a sawed-off rifle. They revisited his property last month, and this time while executing the search warrant found methamphetamine, scales, cash, and 52 additional firearms, including at least two stolen weapons.

Woolwine had been previously convicted in Kanawha County for unlawful wounding, which precluded him from possessing any firearm. He faces up to 10 years in federal prison when he is sentenced August 5.

Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT) and the West Virginia State Police conducted the investigation, while Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Hanks is in charge of the prosecution.
