South Bend Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Stolen Firearms

Darrius Agnew, 33, of Mishawaka, Indiana was sentenced by District Judge Robert L. Miller Jr. to 120 months imprisonment with 2 years supervised release after pleading guilty to the felony offense of possession of a stolen firearm. According to documents filed in this case, Agnew was on home detention under the supervision of the Ducomb Center in November 2012. Agnew refused to let a Ducomb Center employee into his apartment in early November 2012. Local law enforcement did later search Agnew's residence and discovered firearms including an Uzi 9mm, a Springfield XD pistol and a Winchester 1400 MK II 12 gauge shotgun. Upon further inspection, it was determined the Springfield was reported stolen in 2011. This case was the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Donald Schmid.
