In court document filed in the case, the prosecution said that in December 2018, Montana Probation and Parole officers conducted a check and search of Todd’s residence.

The officers found two firearms, a Winchester Model 94 rifle with loaded with four rounds and a Heritage .22-caliber long rifle revolver.

Todd was convicted in 2014 of felony robbery in Montana and was prohibited from possessing firearms.
