James Henrikson, of Watford City, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was scheduled for trial next week.
 
A judge put the proceedings on hold after Henrikson filed a motion Thursday to have evidence thrown out in the case. The document was not specific but said it involved weapons that were discovered in a safe.
