Two Sentenced for Dealing Firearms Without a License

United States Attorney Karen P. Hewitt announced that United States District Judge William Q. Hayes today sentenced Rey Antonio Caballero-Alarcon in federal district court in San Diego to serve 140 months in custody for federal firearms violations. Judge Hayes also ordered the defendant to serve a three-year term of supervised release following his release from custody.

According to court records, on December 29, 2009, Caballero-Alarcon pled guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Deal Firearms without a License and two counts of Possession of Unregistered Firearms. The charges, which were part of an indictment handed up on October 13, 2009, arose from Caballero-Alarcon’s sale of multiple firearms, including a short-barreled Crescent Arms 12-gauge shotgun and a short-barreled Ruger 10/22 carbine .22 caliber rifle, among others, all of which were recovered by federal agents.

Caballero-Alarcon was charged with co-defendant Elvia Magallon, who previously pled guilty to Conspiracy to Deal Firearms without a License and was sentenced on April 9, 2010, to serve 60 months in custody, followed by a three-year term of supervised release.

United States Attorney Hewitt commended the agents of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives who conducted the investigation.
