A Waycross man was sentenced Tuesday for a firearms violation.
Jerome Brown, 33, was sentenced last week before in federal court Wood to 210
months in prison for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
October 2012 a search warrant was executed at Brown's home in which a Lorcin
9mm pistol, crack cocaine, marijuana, and cash were discovered, according to
the U.S. District Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Georgia.
the time of the search, Brown
was prohibited from possessing the firearm and qualified as an armed career criminal
due to four prior felony convictions involving cocaine trafficking and the
obstruction of law enforcement officers.
"The United States Attorney's Office must, and will, continue to aggressively
prosecute those who endanger the safety of our communities. Successful
investigations like these are the result of cooperation between federal, state,
and local law enforcement agencies," said U.S. Attorney Edward J. Tarver in a
Brown's case resulted from a joint investigation by
ATF and the Waycross Police Dept.
