STRATFORD, Wis (WSAU) A convicted felon who was illegally selling firearms out of his Stratford home was arrested yesterday. Sheriffs deputies took 25-year-old Tyler Perkins into custody after getting a search warrant. They found six loaded weapons at his house, and methamphetamine and marijuana.
Perkin's girlfriend, 20-year-old Jasmine Henry, was also arrested.
He's charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and drug possession. Bond was set at $10,000, and prosecutors are reviewing the case for additional charges.
Police believe Perkins sold a gun to Matthew Despleasis, who used it in a Schofield home invasion. He's now under arrest in Michigan from an unrelated case there.
