A man who stole dozens of firearms and silencers from a Las Vegas gun trade show where he was working will serve two years in federal prison, according to the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada.
Jamikko Foster, 27, of Las Vegas was sentenced today on one count each of theft of a firearm from a federal firearms licensee and one count of unlawful possession of a machine gun, officials said.
Upon his release, Foster will face two years of supervision and 1,000 hours of community service.
During a nine-day period ending on Jan. 29, Foster and Eduardo Limon, 28, stole 65 firearms, including 18 handguns, six rifles, three machine guns, and 35 suppressors from four dealers at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade show, referred to as the SHOT Show, officials said.
The following month, authorities, who had identified Foster as a suspect, searched his home and vehicle, recovering the stolen items, except for two suppressors, officials said.
Foster and Limon pleaded guilty to the same charges, officials said. Limon has a sentencing hearing scheduled for October, officials said.
The case was investigated by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Metro Police.
