KINGSTON – A Kingston man pled guilty in Ulster County Court to a felony charge of tampering with physical evidence.

Bruce Chargois was arrested in February by Saugerties Police after an investigation into Instagram posts made by his son, Connor Chargois. The son’s posts expressed his envy for Columbine School shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

Connor was a student at Saugerties High School at the time he made the posts.

During the investigation, police seized from Bruce Chargois’ place of business several rifles including an Uzi machine gun and an AR-15 assault rifle. Police determined Connor Chargois had manufactured the guns in the basement of the family house where his father also lived.

Bruce Chargois admitted to removing the guns from his home and driving them to his place of business to prevent their discovery by police during their investigation.
