A Waterloo man has been sentenced to prison in connection with a gun found during a traffic stop in 2018.
U.S. District Court Chief Judge Leonard Strand sentenced 19-year-old Torey Dunn to 20 months in prison on a charge of being a drug user in possession of a firearm. He will have to serve two years of supervised release following his prison time.
Authorities say Dunn was a passenger in a car that was stopped shortly after midnight on Aug. 2, 2018, by the Waterloo police. As the vehicle came to a stop, Dunn and another man got out and ran in separate directions.
Officers chased Dunn and caught him. They found a loaded handgun in the bushes along Dunn’s path. Dunn told officers he had the gun for protection, and he admitted he smoked marijuana. He also tested positive for marijuana.
