Former Abilene Gold Exchange Co-Owner Charles Camp turned himself in Monday morning and has been booked on charges of firearm smuggling and money laundering.

According to the official document, Camp has been indicted by a Taylor County Grand Jury on charges of allegedly selling firearms illegally and making a profit off of those sales somewhere between $1,500 and $20,000. He has also been indicted on a charge of allegedly "transporting and transferring" three or more firearms which Camp was allegedly aware were obtained illegally.

He is being held on bonds totaling $10,000.

It was back in December of 2012 that Abilene police went to Abilene Gold Exchange to serve a search warrant.

Police said the gold exchange was not recording purchases of precious metal as required by law.

Upon implementation of the warrant, police say another former owner, Marcus Cass, came from a back room in the building and pointed a gun at police.

An officer shot and killed Cass, and Camp was arrested.

Camp was released from federal prison in mid December of 2013, having served a 12 month stint for a charge of felon in possession of a firearm, getting credit for time served since his arrest.
