Coos County jury indicts Lancaster man in theft of firearms

LANCASTER — A Coos County Superior Court grand jury has handed up 10 indictments against a 61-year-old man for allegedly receiving stolen property and being a felon in possession of several firearms in the spring of 2012.

Robert L. Cass of 66 Cascade Flats is charged with six counts of receiving stolen weapons between May 16 and June 5, 2012, in Berlin and Gorham.

Cass is accused of acting in concert with Nina Villnave to receive: a Remington .308 rifle, the property of George Tardif of Berlin; a Benelli 12-gauge shotgun, a New England Firearms 20-gauge shotgun, a Franchi 20-gauge shotgun, a Winchester Model 70 .270 rifle and a Remington 30.06 rifle, all the property of Mark Lysitt of Gorham.

Cass at the time believed the firearms had "probably been stolen," according to the indictments the grand jury handed up at its December session.

Cass was indicted on four counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with four of the same weapons, according to the indictments, which state that he was convicted Jan. 31, 1992, in Coos County Superior Court of welfare fraud.

The charges of receiving stolen property are Class A felonies. The possession charges are Class B felonies.
