A Parkersburg man has admitted to having 26 firearms in his possession despite his status as a convicted felon, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin reports.

Alan Keith Philpott, 46, pleaded guilty Thursday, Feb. 6, to the weapons violation. He previously had been convicted of manufacturing a controlled substance, Goodwin said.

Goodwin said police executing search warrants at Philpott's residence on Elm Tree Drive discovered 22 guns in November 2012 and four more when they returned in March 2013.

He had been convicted of the drug charge in Wood County Circuit Court in December 2006.

Philpott, scheduled for sentencing on May15, faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

West Virginia State Police, Parkersburg police, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Hanks is in charge of the prosecution.
