Tyler Smith, 26, a felon who lives in Buckley, was charged Thursday with unlawful possession of a firearm after he was seen firing two rifles on the reality TV show ‘Doomsday Preppers.’
“If you threaten your neighbors and commit a crime on national TV, you’re likely to be caught,” said Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist said after the charge was filed.
In addition to the TV show footage, Pierce County sheriff’s detectives located evidence at the defendant’s residence, including ammunition, receipts for ammunition and a date-stamped photo of the defendant holding a rifle in 2012, Lindquist said.
