More legal limits have been put on the Mesa man who sold ammunition to the gunman in October’s deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. Douglas Haig has been barred from possessing gun powder as part of his release from custody.

Haig was released from custody a month ago without having to post a bond as long as he didn't possess guns and ammunition. He wasn't accused of violating those rules, but a magistrate tightened the restrictions after an officer recently noticed barrels of gunpowder, blank ammunition and spent ammo at Haig's home.

Haig's attorney says his client has gotten rid of the gunpowder and will soon remove the blank and spent ammunition.

Authorities say Haig’s fingerprints were found on unfired armor-piercing cartridges in the Las Vegas hotel room where Stephen Paddock launched the mass shooting that killed 58 people.
