A convicted felon is facing charges after being found with a loaded hunting rifle during a traffic stop.

45-Year old Terry Warney of Hall Road in Cold Brook, was stopped by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Police on Burt Road in Norway on Saturday, December 7, 2013.

During the stop the officer learned that Warney allegedly had a centerfire hunting rifle, which police report was loaded, in his vehicle.

Warney is said to have admitted to police that he had taken a deer in the Herkimer County town of Litchfield earlier in the hunting season with a gun that he was not allowed to have.

He was subsequently arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, having a loaded weapon in a vehicle, and illegally taking a deer.

Warney’s intentions with the rifle were not stated in information provided by police. However it may be of interest to note that New York’s 2013 regular deer hunting season in the northern and southern zones (which excludes Westchester and Suffolk Counties) ends on Sunday, December 8th.

Warney was previously convicted on December 10, 2007 for rape in the second degree involving a thirteen year-old girl.  No weapon was used in the commission of that crime.  He was released from prison after serving his sentence and is a level-two registered sex offender.
