“Authorities said a Century man was arrested on a federal weapons charge while coaching a little league t-ball game Tuesday afternoon at a Century ballpark.

Joshua Duane Griffis, age 26 of North Century Boulevard, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of unlawful transport of firearms and transport of stolen firearms. According to the indictment, Griffis is a convicted felon, having been convicted of fraudulent use of a credit card, burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and burglary of an occupied dwelling.

Count one of the indictment alleges that Griffis knowingly possessed a .22 caliber revolver in violation of federal law during September 2012. Count two alleges Griffis knowingly concealed and disposed of the stolen firearm during the same time period.

Griffis was taken into custody without incident, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

Griffis made his first appearance in federal court Wednesday before Senior United States District Judge Lacey A. Collier. Collier ordered Griffis held without bond until a detention hearing Monday in federal court in Pensacola before Magistrate Judge Elizabeth M. Timothy.”
