Larry Garrow, Jr. Sentenced to 30 Months in Connection with Burglary of Hardwick Gun Store

The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that Larry Garrow, Jr., 27, of Richford, Vermont was sentenced on Friday to 30 months of imprisonment on a charge of possession stolen firearms. Chief Judge Christina Reiss also ordered that Garrow pay $8,000 in restitution to the Rite Way Sports Shop, and serve a three-year period of supervised release following his term of imprisonment.

In his plea agreement with the government, Garrow stipulated that he stole thirty-two firearms from Rite Way Sports Shop on April 19, 2014. The firearms consisted of .380 caliber and 9 mm handguns. In the immediate aftermath of the gun store burglary, Garrow provided approximately twenty of the firearms to another individual. Those firearms have not been recovered. Law enforcement recovered nine handguns and two pellet guns on April 23, 2014, when Garrow’s father located them in the defendant’s bedroom and turned them over to the Vermont State Police. The serial numbers on the recovered handguns corresponded to the serial numbers on firearms reported stolen by Rite Way. Garrow was arrested on April 23, 2014, and charged with stealing firearms from a federally-licensed firearms dealer. He has remained in custody since his arrest.

This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with the assistance of the United States Border Patrol, the Vermont State Police, and the Hardwick Police Department. The United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Doyle. Garrow was represented by Jordana M. Levine, Esq., of the law firm Marsicovetere Law Group, P.C., of White River Junction, Vermont.
