SHREVEPORT, La. – Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Kiandrew McFan, 23, of Shreveport, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks, Jr. for Illegal Possession of Stolen Explosives Material. McFan was sentenced to 24 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release. McFan pled guilty to the charge in United States District Court on September 25, 2019.

According to evidence introduced in court, on February 17, 2019, a member of the Shreveport Police Department S.W.A.T. Unit reported that his unmarked vehicle was burglarized in front of his Shreveport residence. A flash bang, which is a small explosive device utilized by the S.W.A.T. during a dynamic entry of a dwelling to distract and disorient subjects in the dwelling, was stolen. The flash bang produces a loud audio explosion and an intense flash of light when detonated. On February 22, 2019, Shreveport Police Department officers obtained a warrant and discovered the flash bang at McFan’s residence. McFan admitted to the theft and possession of the explosive material.

The ATF and the Shreveport Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Earl M. Campbell prosecuted the case.
