Adam Michael Webber from Salt Lake City, UT was sentenced to 4 years in prison for dealing firearms without a license and filing fraudulent tax returns.
Webber was the sole owner of HK Parts, an internet gun parts business from 2007-2008. Although Webber did not have a license to sell firearms, he added them to his website and also sold them out of the basement of his residence. From 2009 to 2012, Webber also sold firearms through another company owned by another entity. Webber was caught by ATF agents after he sold weapons to undercover agents, once in a parking lot for cash.
Webber earned more than $10 million from 2007 through 2010 and only reported an income of $183,397 for those years on his individual tax returns. In 2010, Webber purchased a new home in cash for $670,000.
During a search of Webber’s home in 2012, agents found $180,000 in cash, a 70lb silver bar, silver coins and 300 firearms.
In addition to jail time, Webber will serve three years supervised release, $100,000 fine and previously paid restitution to the IRS in the amount of $1,817,887.
