Man awaiting explosive device charges gets 10 years for other charges

GATESVILLE, TX (KXXV) - A man awaiting trial for possession of an explosive device charge, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a separate charge Wednesday.

A 52nd District Court jury in Coryell County sentenced Dennis Biggs to 10 years for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Back in February 2014, Coryell County Sheriff's Department received information that Biggs, a convicted felon, had several firearms. They got consent to search Bigg's property off of FM 116.

During their search, deputies found an artillery simulator and drug paraphernalia in a garage, as well as multiple firearms in a deer blind on the property.

Biggs is also awaiting trial on a charge of possession of an explosive device, which was found during the same search. He will also go on trial for delivery of a controlled substance in Hamilton County.

This was a joint investigation by the Coryell County Sheriff's Office and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. The Texas Rangers also gave additional investigative support.
