ALBANY — A Gloversville man received federal probation Thursday for selling guns without a license, U.S. Attorney's officials said.

Shelley L. Bovee, 63, admitted in August that he sold a total of five firearms across three occasions in 2016 for profit without the required federal license, officials said.

The firearms consisted of two .22-caliber rifles, a .30-30 caliber long gun, a .410-caliber shotgun and an AR-15 variant rifle, officials said.

Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. sentenced Bovee to three years of probation, a $2,000 fine and 50 hours of community service.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Jason W. White.
