New York Man Sentenced to 2 Years for Firearm Charge

BANGOR, Maine:  A New York man was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. District Judge Lance E. Walker sentenced Camby Wilson, 22, to 24 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.

According to court records, in March 2022, an officer with the Augusta Police Department stopped a vehicle in which Wilson was a passenger. Wilson provided officers with a false name and date of birth, and officers asked him to step out of the vehicle. When an officer asked him if he had any weapons on him, he ran away from the officers. They chased him on foot and were able to apprehend him after a brief pursuit. Officers found a loaded .380 caliber pistol in his jacket pocket. A 2019 conviction in New York precluded him from possessing a firearm.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Augusta Police Department investigated the case.
