Former high school student pleads guilty to possessing cache of homemade weapons



KINGSTON – A Saugerties man pled guilty in Ulster County Court on Friday to a charge of criminal possession of a weapon stemming from an investigation into an Internet posting referring to the Columbine School shooting.

Connor Chargois was arrested by Saugerties Police in February following information they received that he had posted comments on the Internet relating to “Eric and Dylan,” those responsible for the Columbine killings.

Chargois was a student at Saugerties High School at the time.

In the ensuing investigation, police seized from Chargois a quantity of ammunition of different calibers, homemade knives, machine fabricated gun parts, a prototype of a firearm that Chargois admitted he had been manufacturing in his basement, as well as a number of completed homemade firearms in both .22 and 9mm caliber capacities.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in February.
