Marana Man Sentenced to 110 Months for Being a Convicted Felon in Possession of Firearms

TUCSON, Ariz. – Darral Wayne Brumley, also known as Darrel Storm, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Timothy M. Burgess to 110 months in prison for being a Felon in Possession of a Firearms and Ammunition. Brumley, 45, of Marana, pleaded guilty on March 24, 2011.

Brumley was arrested in Marana in 2008 on a parole violation warrant from the State of Oregon where he had been previously been convicted of rape, theft, and burglary. Agents obtained a search warrant for his Marana residence and seized 51 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition that he was prohibited from possessing due to his prior felony convictions. After his convictions in the State of Oregon, Brumley relocated to Arizona, acquired the identity of another individual, and then used that identity to create the identity of Darrel Storm. Brumley continued to purchase firearms under this alias. After his 2008 arrest, he was returned to Oregon to serve outstanding prison time on his burglary conviction before being returned to the District of Arizona to face this charge. Among the firearms seized at his residence were pistols, shotguns and rifles of various calibers.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The prosecution was handled by Joelyn Marlowe and Ryan DeJoe, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, District of Arizona, Tucson.
