Mexico man pleads guilty to possessing 65 stolen firearms

JEFFERSON CITY – A Mexico man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to possessing stolen firearms taken during the burglary of Tiger Pawn Shop in Columbia in September 2019.

Tyler Andrew Hilderman, 27, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing stolen firearms and one count of stealing firearms from a licensed firearms dealer.

Co-defendant Alexander Mears, 21, of Columbia, pleaded guilty in on July 14 this year, and admitted that he and Hilderman stole 65 firearms during the burglary.

According to Mears’ plea argument, he and Hilderman made a hole in Tiger Pawn Shop’s wall in order to enter the pawn shop, where Mears handed the firearms through to Hilderman who remained outside. 

Hilderman received one pistol from the burglary, a Springfield Armory .45-caliber pistol. The pistol was found by law enforcement officers who executed a search warrant at a residence in Cooper County.

The occupant of the residence told officers he purchased the gun from a woman, who in turn said she obtained the gun from Hilderman.
