A North Smithfield man, Elliot Knorr, was arrested by RI State Police on Wednesday after they found 15 completed ghost guns, 36 large-capacity feeding devices, and ghost gun parts in his Main Street apartment. Knorr was charged with possession of a prohibited large-capacity feeding device and possession of a ghost gun, among other weapons charges. He was granted $25,000 surety bail and ordered to surrender his firearms. Another man, 56-year-old Ferdinando Lombardi, was arrested the day prior for possessing over 20 ghost guns in his Pawtucket apartment and racked up 163 charges. The two cases are unclearly connected. Ghost guns are considered a real threat to public safety, and impeding their manufacture is a win, says RI State Police Col. Darnell Weaver.
