November 20, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A second man has been sentenced for stealing guns from an undercover Sedgwick County Sheriff’s vehicle.

The Wichita Eagle reports that 37-year-old Justin Winger was sentenced Monday to two years and nine months in prison after he pleaded guilty to failure to report a crime. Winger admitted in his plea that he was with 38-year-old Travis Keller, when Keller broke into an undercover sheriff’s car and stole guns.

Kansas Department of Corrections records show Winger was on parole at the time. Keller previously was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison.

The stolen guns included a 9-mm handgun, a 12-gauge shotgun and a 5.56-caliber rifle.

Winger said that Keller sold the guns to Arthur Mannie for $400 and an ounce of marijuana. Mannie is scheduled for trial Jan. 8.
