Lyons Man Sentenced For Felon In Possession of a Firearm Conviction

Adam Beck, age 50 of Lyons, Nebraska, was sentenced for his conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.  United States District Court Judge Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Beck to 110 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release.

In August of 2012, Beck’s residence was searched by the Thurston County Sheriff’s Department in connection with an investigation of another individual.  During the search, various firearms were located including a Ruger rifle which had been reported stolen in Burt County, a Winchester rifle and a Savage Arms rifle.  DNA testing indicated that Beck was the major contributor of DNA found on two of the weapons and that he was a minor contributor of DNA found on the third rifle.  At the time of the search, Beck was on supervised release from a 2007 federal conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

 This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
