SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Keithville man has been sentenced to five years in prison for his part in stealing firearms from a Shreveport warehouse.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said in a news release that 44-year-old James Minor Jr. was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Maurice Hicks Jr. on one count of conspiracy to steal firearms.
Minor had pleaded guilty in March. Prosecutors said Minor conspired with two other Keithville men - 31-year-old David McNeil and 22-year-old Cameron Johnson - along with 23-year-old Luther Williams Jr. of Shreveport.
They conspired to steal 63 Colt M4 Carbine rifles in 2013 from a shipping warehouse where Johnson worked as a guard. Williams has been sentenced to 33 months in prison in the case; Johnson, to 37 months in prison; and McNeil to six years.
