Prison For Gun Trade Show Worker Who Stole 65 Firearms
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas trade show worker who pleading guilty to stealing three machine guns and more than 60 other firearms at the U.S. gun industry's biggest annual convention in January has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.
U.S. District Judge Richard Boulware II also ordered 27-year-old Jamikko Foster Thursday to complete 1,000 hours of community service and two years' probation following his release.
Foster admitted he stole silencers, handguns, rifles, machine guns and dozens of suppressors while he was working in Las Vegas at the National Shooting Sports Foundation's 2019 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade show known as the "SHOT" show.
Federal agents recovered all but two of the 65 stolen weapons during a search of Foster's residence in February.
A co-defendant, 28-year-old Eduardo Limon, also pleaded guilty. He's scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 24.
