Charles Tan indicted on gun charges

Charles Tan indicted on gun charges”

Almost two years after murder charges were dropped against a Pittsford man in the death of his father, federal gun charges have been filed against Charles Tan.

Tan's murder trial ended in a hung jury, and a judge dismissed the case in a controversial decision.

Canadian citizen Charles Tan was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents while entering the US on Friday.

Charles Tan is in federal custody, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Southwick.

In this latest indictment, handed up by a grand jury and filed on August 23, Tan is accused of acquiring a Remington 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition at a Cortland Walmart on February 5, 2015.

An unsealed indictment charges Tan with improperly receiving a 12-gauge shotgun, ammunition and lying to a gun seller at Walmart to obtain the weapon.

If convicted, Tan faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years on each count and fines.

Tan was originally charged with second-degree murder in the death of his father, Lang Tan. But Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley is quoted as saying her office is interested in how the federal prosecutors will move forward with their indictment.
