Jones filed administrative claims. The Court granted the Motion and subsequently
granted the United States’ second requested extension on August 17, 2016. On
September 13, 2016, the Grand Jury indicted Defendant Jeffrey Jones with possession of
a firearm by a drug user, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(g)(3) and 924(a)(2); and
possession of an unregistered firearm, in violation of 26 U.S.C. § 5861(d).

.22 caliber, Serial Number: 262‐09820; one (1) Armscor of the Philippines (Squires
Bingham), M20P rifle; one (1) Mossberg 535, 12 gauge shotgun, Serial Number:
AT007577; four (4) rounds of assorted .22 caliber ammunition; seventy‐five (75)
rounds of assorted ammunition, unknown caliber; one hundred eighty‐one (181)
rounds of assorted ammunition, unknown caliber; and three hundred ninety‐six (396)
rounds of assorted ammunition, unknown caliber.
Because the firearms and ammunition included in the Indictment of Defendant
Jeffrey Jones are the same property listed in the United States’ Motions to Extend Time
to Commence Judicial Action [Docs. 1, 3], the United States represents no further action
is needed in this case. Therefore, the Court HEREBY GRANTS the United States’
Motion to Close [Doc. 5] and ORDERS this miscellaneous case to be CLOSED.
SO ORDERED, this 24th day of January, 2017.
