Nov. 18, 2017
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The theft of 25 handguns from a dealer in Tickfaw has resulted in a three-year, one-month sentence for a 19-year-old from Ponchatoula.
Acting U.S. Attorney Duane Evans says in a news release that the sentence was handed down this week for Antwon Seymore.
Seymore had pleaded guilty to theft of firearms from a premises owned by a federally-licensed firearms dealer.
Prosecutors said the theft happened in April 2016, when Seymore and a juvenile broke into The Tickfaw Auction Company.
Seymore also was ordered to pay $8,780 in restitution.
