DODGE COUNTY, Minn. (FOX 47) — The Dodge Center man who was arrested on charges of posing as a federal agent is facing new charges after authorities found an arsenal of firearms at his home.
52-year-old Reyel Devon Simmons is accused of pretending to be a homeland security agent on social media and now facing a charge of illegally possessing firearms.
Simmons carries previous felony convictions for menacing and prostitution out of Colorado which prohibits him from owning a gun.
Following his arrest, Simmons claimed he didn’t own any guns but officers found firearms in his backpack. That discovery led to a search of his home. He later admitted the guns were his.
Simmons has not been offered bail and remains behind bars facing federal charges.
