For small-town trio, gun charges are big trouble

April 26, 2007

ROSE CITY -- Some folks say former Ogemaw County Prosecutor Frederick MacKinnon and his buddies were gun nuts -- a compliment of sorts in this tiny community in Michigan's north woods.

Others suspect the men may have been stockpiling machine guns, silencers and ammunition for a right-wing paramilitary group.

Federal officials say MacKinnon, along with former Chief Assistant Prosecutor Gary Theunick and ex-Rose City Police Chief Maxwell Garnett obtained the weapons illegally and failed to pay taxes on them. The men say they bought the equipment to protect residents.

... "My community consistently ranked in the top of the country in violent crime, but I never felt the need to have machine guns," said former Genesee County Prosecutor Arthur Busch of Flint.

... Before leaving office, MacKinnon and Theunick, the county's only prosecutors, decided to transfer the weapons -- at least on paper -- to the Rose City Police Department. The ATF approved the transfer. Garnett, the police chief who knew both men, appointed MacKinnon and Theunick reserve police officers so they could keep the weapons, court records show. Federal prosecutors say the men performed almost no work as reserve officers.

... Adding to the suspicion was a Michigan Militia shoulder patch that Theunick displayed on a wall of his office. He said it was a gift from a friend. Theunick, nicknamed Rambo, also carried a pistol in a shoulder holster and wore military fatigues to work, unusual behavior for a prosecutor.
