A Paterson man with prior felony convictions today admitted to illegally transporting and selling 16 firearms for over $8,000 on four occasions beginning in July 2019, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced.

According to Acting U.S. Attorney Honig, Floyd Henry, aka “HK,” 36, pleaded guilty to an information charging him with one count of illegally engaging in the business of dealing in firearms and four counts of possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

From July 15, 2019, through September 25, 2019, Henry engaged in the business of dealing firearms, while not being a federally licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer. 

On four occasions, in Passaic County, Henry sold or attempted to sell a total of 16 firearms, including two semi-automatic rifles, three revolvers, and 11 semi-automatic pistols, as well as over 100 rounds of ammunition, in exchange for over $8,000. 

Henry had purchased or obtained the firearms and ammunition in other states, transported them to New Jersey, and sold them to an individual in Passaic County.

Henry's sentencing is scheduled for November 23.
