Omaha Man Sentenced for Possessing a Firearm

May 2, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on May 2, 2013, Craig Grimes, age 36 of Omaha, was sentenced to 4 years, 8 months in prison for possessing a firearm in Omaha on March 15, 2012, after having previously been convicted of a felony offense.  Following the prison term, Grimes will serve three years on supervised release. 

On January 21, 2011, Grimes was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana in the Federal District Court of New Mexico.  A term of his supervised release from that conviction authorized the United States Probation office, with or without the assistance of law enforcement, to search his residence.  On March 15, 2012, officers of the Omaha Police Department and United States Probation office searched Grimes’ residence.  A Rossi .357 caliber revolver was found under Mr. Grimes’ bed that contained his DNA.

Federal law makes it a felony for anyone who has been convicted of a felony offense to possess a firearm.
