Colorado Man Arrested for Possession of Firearms, Destructive Devices, and Nazi Memorabilia

A Colorado man, identified as 36-year-old Dean Fabiano, has been arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. The arrest came after law enforcement officials searched Fabiano’s home and discovered over a dozen firearms, potentially destructive devices, and Nazi memorabilia and drawings. The investigation was initiated when U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted a package from China labeled as “TOYS,” which contained two Glock switches without serial numbers. These switches enable a handgun to operate in a fully automatic manner.

Legal analyst George Brauchler noted that federal authorities had been monitoring the importation of trigger devices and suppressors disguised as toys or similar items from China. Fabiano had received at least six shipments from companies known for illegally shipping gun parts into the United States since 2018.

During the search of Fabiano’s residence, law enforcement officers found 18 firearms, various firearm parts and ammunition, body armor, suspected drugs including Xanax, psilocybin mushrooms, and suspected methamphetamine. Additionally, potential destructive devices, elements for pipe bomb construction, and Nazi memorabilia and drawings were discovered. A letter found at the residence led to the issuance of a search warrant for a storage unit rented by Fabiano, where additional firearms were found, including one with a swastika covering its serial number.

The case is now being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The complaint did not mention any specific threats associated with Fabiano’s possession of the firearms and Nazi memorabilia. Fabiano, who has multiple felony convictions dating back to 2002, is prohibited from owning firearms or ammunition.
