SUBMITTED ARTICLE

SOLEDAD — On June 7, Robert Bagwell, 45, of Soledad has entered a plea of no contest to possession of ammunition by a felon.

On Jan. 12, Bagwell was causing a disturbance in his neighborhood. Neighbors had seen Bagwell with a sword and were concerned. Officers from the Soledad Police Department were familiar with Bagwell from prior similar cases and responded. They located ammunition and a meth pipe on Bagwell, who is prohibited from possessing guns or ammunition due to prior felony convictions.

Bagwell was immediately sentenced to eight months in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation by Monterey County Superior Court Judge Andrew Liu.

Bagwell had been previously sentenced on Feb. 22 to six years and eight months in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for possessing numerous guns and large quantities of ammunition in 2015.

Bagwell was out on bail for the 2015 crimes when he committed the current offense. The eight months Bagwell received in the current case will be served consecutively to the previous sentence.

This case was investigated by the Soledad Police Department.
