A candidate for mayor of Holdrege is under arrest Tuesday night following the execution of a federal warrant.

Holdrege police confirm to NTV News that they arrested Joe Melton Tuesday afternoon on an ATF warrant for possession of an unregistered firearm.

Police didn't have much more info on the background of the warrant, but they say Melton is currently in the Phelps County Jail without bond.

No idea at this point. If I had to guess, some kind of FFL-related serial number stuff with silencers, given the nature of his business.

Not exactly painting a good picture of this gentleman are they? Sounds like a hothead. But as we all know the media can be misleading.

My wife grew up in Holdrege and most of her family lives there. She knew him in high school. By all accounts, this guy is an asshole.

Suppressors huh. When the story broke on the news a few weeks ago my shooting buddies and I were wondering what the back story was. We were all guessing that he'd been shooting an illegal mg around the wrong person. I grew up and still live just down the road from Holdrege, don't know the guy though I probably seen him at the Holdrege fun show.
