Omaha Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Illegally Possessing a Firearm

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Aaron Craddock, age 30 of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today by the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, to three years, one month imprisonment following his conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Craddock had previously pleaded guilty to the charge.  Upon completion of his imprisonment, he will be on three years of supervised release. 

On December 2, 2015, at approximately 9:21 p.m., officers of the Omaha Police Department stopped a car for turning into a driveway on J.A. Creighton Boulevard without using a turn signal.  Craddock was the lone occupant.  A drug dog alerted on the car.  Officers searched the car and found 10 pounds of marijuana.  The officers got a search warrant for Craddock’s residence and found a Taurus .40 caliber handgun in his bedroom.  He has a prior felony conviction and as a result is prohibited from possessing firearms.  

The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
