For Immediate Release
Felon from Albuquerque Sentenced to Prison for Violating Federal Firearms Laws
Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies arrested Sadlowski at his home on Feb. 22, 2016. According to court records, they found 13 firearms at Sadlowski’s residence, including two previously reported stolen. Deputies also found assorted ammunition. Sadlowski was prohibited from possession any firearms or ammunition at this time because of his previous criminal convictions for trafficking a controlled substance, receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle, and tampering with evidence.
Sadlowski pled guilty to the indictment on April 5, 2018. He admitted possessing two handguns and ammunition despite being a convicted felon.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated this case with the BCSO. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samuel A. Hurtado prosecuted the case under Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
