Federal grand jury indicts Joplin man on weapons charges

A federal grand jury indicted Travis Dean Morris, 22, Joplin, on weapons charges today.

According to the indictment, Morris allegedly possessed a firearm illegally since he was a convicted felon.

He is currently awaiting trial in Jasper County Circuit Court on felony charges of burglary in the first degree and possession of a controlled substance.
