MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Ted McCall Snow of Wilmer, Alabama, pleaded not guilty on Friday, April 26 to a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, and possession of a stolen firearm.
The indictment charges Snow was previously convicted of eleven cases of burglary, receiving stolen property and theft in Mobile County Circuit Court between 1989 and 2007.
By virtue of these convictions, and Snow's resulting status as a convicted felon, he is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.
Snow is alleged to have possessed three types of ammunition on March 5, 2013, and three stolen firearms on March 8, 2013.
During his hearing on April 23, the judge increased his bond due to his lengthy criminal history. Snow, however, was still able to post bail that same day. The next morning he was arrested by federal authorities.
Snow has been arrested more than 25 times. He has been convicted of eleven cases of burglary, receiving stolen property and theft in Mobile County.
He is just one of the repeat offenders FOX10 has been following. With the latest federal charge, Snow is being held until a federal judge decides if he should or should not be detained.
A hearing to decide that is set for Wednesday, May 1.
