ORLANDO, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A University of Central Florida student was arrested after campus police were tipped off about illegal alterations to a firearm.

Max Chambers, a 20-year-old mechanical engineering major, was arrested after officials said that he used a device on his AR-15 that can increase the rate of fire, effectively turning a semi-automatic gun into an automatic one.

The device, a drop-in auto sear, is outlawed in Florida as part of the bump stock ban. A federal ban on bump stocks will take effect in March.

Officers later found two completed DIAS, another in progress, knives that violated Chambers’ campus policy and several legally owned guns upon contact with Chambers, according to the University of Central Florida Police Department.
