PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Attorney General’s Office announced Tuesday that a man is facing charges for bringing a ghost gun to a garage building on the state-run Eleanor Slater Hospital campus in Burrillville.

Officials said 60-year-old Kenneth Fullam was arrested by Rhode Island State Police on Nov. 21, 2022 after hospital staff reported a state-employed carpenter who allegedly kept a gun in his locker.

Troopers searched the garage building and had Fullam open a metal wall locker with a keypad lock.

Inside the locker, troopers reportedly found an AR-15 firearm with no serial number, two boxes of spent shell casings, and one box of reloadable projectiles.

Fullam is set to appear in Providence County Superior Court on June 30.
