A Delaware County man who was allegedly selling firearms out of his car in the parking lot of a gun show was arrested earlier this month.
Kevin L. Stillman, 48, of Aston, faces felony counts of Firearm Sale to an Unqualified or Ineligible Person and Recklessly Endangering Another Person, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.
Authorities gave the following account leading up to the arrest:
On Feb. 10, staff at the Greater Expo Center of Philadelphia in Oaks summoned authorities after learning a man was in their parking lot selling guns that Saturday morning outside the Eagle Arms Weapons Show.
Detectives immediately organized surveillance and initiated an undercover operation, and a detective posing as an interested buyer who could not legally possess a firearm was able to purchase two firearms from the defendant, authorities alleged. Stillman allegedly told the undercover buyer he would report the guns to authorities as stolen.
Due to Stillman's actions at the scene, he was held at a secure facility until he was able to be formally charged.
Arraigned Tuesday before Magisterial District Judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar, who set bail at $500,000 cash, Stillman was unable to make bail and remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on March 6, 2018 before Rebar.
