A 21-year-old Maryland man has been sentenced in West Virginia to three years and five months in federal prison for possessing stolen firearms.

Gaithersburg resident Nevyou Alemu was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Clarksburg.

Prosecutors say Alemu and two other people stole about 14 firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from a home in New Milton, West Virginia, in 2014 before returning to Maryland. Alemu was caught in Doddridge County with a .22-caliber pistol and a 20-gauge shotgun.
