Bismarck Man Sentenced in Possession Charge

Posted: Updated:

A jury found Felon Dylan Romero guilty of possession of a firearm. He's sentenced to seven years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Romero was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim's Fund.

In August 2012, law enforcement received information that a prohibited person, known as "Twist," was interested in obtaining a handgun. "Twist," identified as Dylan Romero, contacted an undercover ATF agent. Romero and the agent agreed to exchange the handgun for a $600 ounce of cocaine.

Romero provided the agent with an ounce of fake cocaine and Romero took the gun, which was locked and disabled. Law enforcement immediately arrested Romero.

Romero has eight prior felony convictions and is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
