CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced that Gary Brian Adams, 35, of Logan, West Virginia was sentenced today in federal court in Charleston to 37 months in federal prison for being a convicted felon in possession of three firearms.
In May of 2013, officers with the West Virginia State Police and the Logan County Sheriff’s Department responded to a home near Chapmanville and recovered three firearms that Adams had stored in the home. Adams has two prior felony drug trafficking convictions from Logan County, so he is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms.
This case was investigated by the West Virginia State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in the United States by networking existing local programs targeting gun crime.
