Felon Caught With Guns At Fremont Chop Shop Pleads Guilty

A 39-year-old man arrested by an SPD Swat team at a Fremont garage last November could face as many as 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal charges for weapons possession and witness tampering.

Sean Campbell, 40, pleaded guilty in US District Court last week, according to court records, almost exactly one year after police served a warrant at a garage in the 4500 block of Leary Way, where they found Campbell and another man, Nikita Morozov, with a cache of stolen guns and vehicles.

From our original story:

When SWAT, detectives, and members of the Major Crimes Taskforce searched the garage, records say police found found several shotguns, rifles, and handguns, along with ammunition, silencers, and pipe bombs.”There was evidence that the occupants were using the structure as a shooting gallery,” police documents say, noting that loaded firearms were kept in a sleeping area in the building. “The most logical area to sleep had a shotgun in plain-sight.”

Court records describe Campbell as a “violent felon” and note that he has a long criminal history including thefts, burglaries, and car prowls dating all the way back to 1985, when he was still a juvenile.

We’re checking to see if Campbell’s been sentenced yet. We’ll update when we find out.
