BANGOR — A New Sharon man has pleaded guilty to being in possession of an arsenal of 19 guns as well as other items stolen from a Jay home.

Federal prosecutors say 33-year-old Roger Briscoe waived indictment Wednesday in U.S. District Court and pleaded guilty.

Prosecutors say Briscoe broke into the Jay home in January and stole 19 guns, a chainsaw, a laptop computer and a container of change. The weapons included six semi-automatic rifles, five semi-automatic pistols and shotguns.

Authorities say Briscoe was identified as a suspect early in the investigation and most of the stolen items were found during a search of his home, hidden in various places.

Briscoe faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing, which has not yet been scheduled.
