Omaha man sentenced for stealing firearms
OMAHA, Neb. -- An Omaha man was sentenced to prison after his conviction of stealing firearms.
Acting U.S. Attorney Susan Lehr said 19-year-old Harley Jones Davis, of Omaha, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Oct. 11. He was convicted for possession of stolen firearms, an offense that he previously pled guilty to. Jones Davis will serve 78 months in prison with a term of three years of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.
Court documents state that an investigation was done by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (“ATF”). They discovered that Jones Davis, along with four other juvenile co-conspirators who were separately charged and sentenced in state court, broke into the Frontier Justice Gun Club after hours on June 30, 2022.
Officials said the five stole the following weapons: Ruger MARK IV, .22 caliber handgun; Sig Sauer P365 SAS 9mm handgun; Huxwrx Rad 22 suppressor; Century Arms AP5 pistol; Glock Model 22 .40 Caliber handgun; Sig Sauer STX pistol; Ruger-57 pistol; Sig Sauer P320 pistol; Taurus Armas G3C handgun; HS Produkt SI Hellcat pistol; HS Produkt SI XDM Elite pistol; CZ Scorpion pistol; FN 509 pistol; Staccato 2011 Pistol; and FN SCAR 17S Rifle.
According to authorities, a felon living in Jones Davis’s home at the time, co-defendant Federico Cortez, sold four of the stolen weapons to an undercover informant working with the ATF. They searched Jones Davis’s home after the illegal gun sales and found numerous more stolen weapons, as well as other items related to the burglary. Cortez was previously sentenced to 85 months in prison on July 27 for his role in these crimes.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
