MADISON - A Monroe man was indicted Wednesday in federal court for allegedly stealing five guns from a rural Monroe firearms dealer.

The indictment alleges that Daniel J. Kundert, 21, stole a .223 caliber rifle, three 9 mm pistols and one .45 caliber pistol on May 17, 2010 from Hunting Woodlands Co., 2830 County DR.

A person answering the phone Wednesday afternoon at Hunting Woodlands declined to comment on the alleged crime or identify himself. Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman, assigned to the case, didn't return a phone call before deadline.

In June 2010, Kundert was charged in Green County with possession with the intent to deliver narcotics and was sentenced to 30 months in prison. He also was convicted in Green County after being charged in 2009 for possession of narcotics. He is currently incarcerated at the Jackson Correctional Institution.

No court dates have been set in the federal case. If convicted of theft from a federally licensed firearms dealer, Kundert faces maximum statutory penalties of 10 years in prison.
