TOPEKA, KAN. - A Topeka man was sentenced Monday to 6 years in federal prison for possession of a stolen firearm.

Bryan K. Carter, 33 of Topeka, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a stolen firearm. In his plea, he admitted that on Dec. 3, 2011, he was arrested by officers of the Topeka Police Department on an outstanding warrant.

The gray Infiniti he was driving had been reported stolen and police impounded it. On Dec. 13, 2011, police received a tip that someone was planning to burglarize the police impound lot to retrieve a firearm that was hidden under the hood of the Infiniti. Police searched the car and found the gun, a .22 caliber pistol, before a burglary took place.

Carter admitted he received the gun in exchange for narcotics and was aware the firearm has been stolen.

US Attorney General, Grissom commended the Topeka Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Assistant U.S. Attorney Randy Hendershot for their work on the case.
