The man who was reportedly arrested in Pakistan with a gun, a sword, night goggles, and Christian literature on a mission to kill Osama bin Laden, has a substantial criminal record in his home state of Colorado.
The Denver Post reports on Gary Brooks Faulkner:
He has been arrested several times in Colorado over the years, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation Records. He served prison sentences in Canon City, at least twice, in 1981 and 1986, on burglary and larceny convictions, according to CBI records.
In 1996, Faulkner was sentenced to one year in the Denver County Jail on a domestic violence assault conviction, according to Denver court records.
More recently, Faulkner was arrested in Greeley in 2006 on a misdemeanor “failure to appear” warrant from another jurisdiction, according to records.
