Lufkin Man Federally Indicted

Isaiah Murphy, a 23-year-old, has been federally indicted on charges of being a felon possessing a shot gun and a pistol.

In March, Lufkin police executed an arrest warrant at Murphy's home. It was for five prior undercover purchases of crack cocaine. During the search, officers recovered the two fire-arms, one unregistered. Murphy already had prior felony convictions for possession and delivery of a controlled substance, abandoning and endangering a child, and retaliation.

If convicted, Murphy could receive 15 years to life and a $250-thousand dollar fine.
