Second Man Sentenced for Gun Theft

A second man has been sentenced in U.S. Court in Muskogee for stealing guns from Gems Gun & Pawn in Sallisaw.

The U.S. Attorney’s office announced Thursday that Jimmy Don McCoy Jr., 25, of Tulsa was sentenced to 13 months in prison for stealing firearms from a federal firearms licensed dealer.

Earlier this week Gregory McIntyre, 19, of Sallisaw was sentenced to 13 months imprisonment for stealing firearms from a federal firearms licensed dealer, also Gems Gun & Pawn.

The Indictment alleged that on Aug. 29, 2015, McCoy and McIntyre stole guns from the shop. All the guns were shipped and transported in interstate commerce either before or after being stolen.

The charges arose from an investigation by the Sallisaw Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. 

District Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearing. The McCoy and McIntyre will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which he will serve his non-paroleable sentence.
