Feds Raid Home Of "Survivalist"

Feds raid house in Ogdensburg, take one in for questioning

OGDENSBURG — Federal authorities on Thursday conducted a raid without incident on a house at 305 King St., across from the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center emergency room, and took one person into custody.

Witnesses say that Jack Rumble, the property owner, left with police for questioning.

Although police have not disclosed the nature of the raid, a longtime friend of Mr. Rumble, Lee E. Skelly, speculated that weapons may be involved. He said Mr. Rumble's father was a World War II veteran who started a collection of war memorabilia to which Mr. Rumble himself continued to add.

"I know Jack liked to collect guns," he said. "But I thought he had a license."

Mr. Skelly, however, vouched for Mr. Rumble's character.

"Jack Rumble is a standup guy, an excellent citizen, and definitely a bonus to the community," he said.

Authorities have been removing and cataloging numerous weapons since Mr. Rumble left with police.

Another longtime friend and hunting buddy, Mark A. Brossoit, said Mr. Rumble owns between 150 and 200 guns, and enough spare parts to assemble about 100 more.

He said Mr. Rumble made his living as a union painter and described him as a survivalist who disapproves of a large, activist government.

"He's a good guy, though. He doesn't break the law," Mr. Brossoit said.

About 15 to 20 personnel, assisted by state and local authorities, conducted the operation around 1:15 p.m. Both ends of King Street were blocked off until about 3 p.m. Police tape remains around the front of the house.

Times reporters David Winters and Max Mitchell contributed to this report.

I think this is how they keep citizens from having more guns than they do. if your brother has more toys than you then you steal his.
if everyone likes you then you are most likely a coward who's too afraid to stand up for anything worthwhile

Man pleads not guilty to trading arms for pot

OGDENSBURG — A city man entered a not guilty plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court to a charge that he traded weapons for marijuana.

John B. "Jack" Rumble, 50, of 305 King St., is charged in a federal grand jury indictment handed up April 15 with trading in firearms made outside of the state while being an unlawful user of a controlled substance.

He has been in federal custody since April 2, when about 175 shotguns, assault rifles, pistols and revolvers and more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition were found in his home after authorities raided the residence.

Also Tuesday, Judge Glenn T. Suddaby recused himself from the case because he had been involved in a related investigation while serving as U.S. Attorney.
