    A Lewisville man has pleaded guilty to violating federal gun laws after agents raided his house and found 122 guns, 405,000 rounds of ammunition, stolen military weapons and a destructive device.

    Scott Whittington, 38, pleaded guilty to possessing unlicensed firearms and smuggling government property, according to federal court records.

    In his plea, Whittington also admitted exporting a night vision weapon sight for $1,450 and possessing firearms with altered serial numbers.

    Agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Lewisville police raided Whittington's home in the 900 block of Carver Circle in August. The list of items seized totals 50 pages.

    ATF spokesman Andrew Young said he could not discuss the case until Whittington is sentenced. A sentencing date has not been set.

    Whittington's attorney, Martin Lenoir, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
