COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA - On November 5, 2014, Barvarito Garcia Longoria, a 35 year-old resident of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge John A. Jarvey to 84 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt.

Pottawattamie County law enforcement investigated a domestic incident, and found Garcia Longoria in possession of a defaced 9mm handgun.
