Tucson Man Sentenced to 46 Months for Prohibited Possession of Firearms

TUCSON, Ariz. – On Tuesday, Javier Rafael Haro-Aguilar, 24, of Tucson, Arizona, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins to 46 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Haro-Aguilar previously pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by an illegal alien. 

A federal search warrant executed at Haro-Aguilar’s residence revealed multiple firearms and ammunition, as well as evidence of narcotics trafficking and the use of a Snapchat account to traffic drugs and sell firearms. As a citizen of Mexico who lacks legal status in the United States, Haro-Aguilar was prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition.  

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation in this case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stefani Hepford, District of Arizona, Tucson, handled the prosecution.
