ABILENE, TX -- Former Abilene Gold Exchange Co-Owner Charles Camp turned himself in Monday morning and has been booked on charges of firearm smuggling and money laundering.

According to official documents, Camp was indicted by a Taylor County Grand Jury on charges of selling firearms illegally and making a profit off of those sales between $1,500 and $20,000. Camp was also indicted on a charge of illegally “transporting and transferring” three or more firearms.

Camp was held Monday morning on bonds totaling $10,000.

In December of 2012 Abilene police went to Abilene Gold Exchange to serve a search warrant.  Police said the Gold Exchange was not recording purchases of precious metal as required by law.

Police also said another former owner, Marcus Cass, came from a back room in the building and pointed a gun at police.  An officer shot and killed Cass, and Camp was arrested.
