Guatemalan Man Sentenced For Possession of Firearms

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced that on November 13, 2017, Chief United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Luis Lorenzo-Urbina, age 31, of Bellevue, Nebraska for his conviction for being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm.  Lorenzo-Urbina was sentenced to fifteen months of imprisonment to be followed by a term of supervised release of three years. 


Lorenzo-Urbina is a citizen of Guatemala.  Although he had illegally entered the United States, he was placed on an immigration bond and was allowed to remain in the United States pending completion of proceedings in immigration court.  On May 23, 2017, Bellevue Police responded to a disturbance call and encountered Lorenzo-Urbina.  A search of his vehicle yielded a Mossberg shotgun and a Ruger revolver.  Further investigation revealed store surveillance photos of Lorenzo-Urbina showing the Ruger to a pawnshop employee.  The weapons had been stolen from a home in Iowa a few days earlier.


This case was investigated by Immigration and Custom Enforcement and the Bellevue Police Department.
