A Connecticut man waived his right to be indicted and pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number, the Justice Department announced last week.

Leonard Sikorski, 60, of New Milford, pleaded guilty to the one count in a Connecticut federal court on Oct. 18.

Sikorski was arrested in September 2015 after calling 911 for help to save a 24-year-old woman overdosing on heroin in his living room, local media reported. After an ambulance brought the woman to the hospital, authorities searched Sikorski’s house and found 42 blasting caps designed to ignite large explosives along with heroin and needles.

Last month, Sikorski pleaded guilty in state court for illegal possession of explosives and sentenced to 90 months in jail.

Contributing to the federal charges, the Justice Department said also in September 2015, Sikorski transported three rifles, two shotguns and more than 1,500 rounds of ammo to a pair of storage lockers he rented in Danbury. A month later, he told federal agents about them and consented to a search. Agents found that one of the shotguns, a Remington 12 gauge, had an obliterated serial number.

Sikorski is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 13. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
