AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

An Amarillo man faces up to ten years of prison and a $250,000 fine after pleading guilty in federal court to illegally possessing a firearm.

A sentencing date for Pat Jarrett Helton, 43, has been set for early June. 

According to documents filed in the case, a federal search warrant executed at Helton's property in Mobeetie, Texas, recovered 91 firearms and large quantities of ammunition. Among the guns seized were a shotgun and a semiautomatic rifle with illegal barrels, three stolen firearms and at least four large-ammunition semiautomatic firearms. 

Helton had been convicted in 2003 on a felony offense for a firearm that was not registered and was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison.

As part of Wednesday's plea, Helton signed a forfeiture agreement waiving his right to others items seized during the search: $24,783 in currency and multiple trailers and vehicles, including a 1992 Lamborghini Diablo.

The case was investigated by the FBI, Texas Department of Public Safety and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
