Final Defendant Sentenced In Federal Gun Conspiracy Case

Gulfport, Miss – Robert Arnold Savage, 62, of Grand Bay, Alabama, was sentenced by Senior District Judge Walter J. Gex III to serve 41 months in prison for a federal firearms charge, U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis announced. He was also ordered to forfeit a total of 85 firearms and pay a $3,000 fine.

Savage was one of 15 defendants charged in a firearms conspiracy case involving the illegal sale of firearms. He pled guilty on December 7, 2012 to the illegal sale of firearms to a person he believed was an unlicensed out-of-state resident who was actually an undercover ATF agent.

This case was the result of an undercover investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives into the Simon City Royals criminal street gang and persons illegally selling firearms. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Annette Williams.
