Harpswell Man Sentenced to 52 Months for Theft of Firearms from a Licensed Firearms Dealer

Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Hyunkook Korsiak, 36, of Harpswell, Maine was sentenced today by Chief Judge Nancy Torresen in U.S. District Court to 52 months in prison for theft of firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer.

According to court records, on January 3, 2017, the defendant stole firearms from C&R Trading Post.  Brunswick Police discovered the theft when they responded to a burglar alarm and found a broken window near the building’s entrance.  The police, using a police dog, located several firearms, a sledgehammer and drops of blood on snow in nearby woods.  The blood was later determined to be the defendant’s.  Korsiak pled guilty to the charge last September. 

The case was investigated by the Sagadohoc County Sheriff’s Office; the Brunswick Police Department; and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
