Colorado man faces weapons, drug charges

Charges were filed in Grundy County Circuit Court in late January against a Colorado man who is accused of possessing illegal weapons and defacing the serial number on a handgun.

Steven A. Trad, 42, of Grand Lake, Colo, is facing three felony weapons charges and a misdemeanor drug charge, which were all filed Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Specifically, Trad was charged with unlawful use of weapons, a Class 3 felony, for using a New England 12-gauge shotgun with the barrel less than 18 inches. Another unlawful use of weapons charged was leveled against him for having the shotgun modified so the overall length was less than 26 inches.

A third count of defacing the identification marks on a firearm, also a Class 3 felony, was filed because Trad possessed a 9 mm Beretta handgun that had the manufacturer’s or importer’s serial number obliterated.

Trad was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor. He allegedly had more than 10 grams, but not more than 30 grams of marijuana in his possession.
