KSAL StaffMarch 18, 2014

A Salina man admits to a federal gun crime.

Acording to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s Office, 45-year-old Stephen M. Smith, Jr. pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

In his plea, Smith admitted that he possessed a .40 caliber handgun when he was arrested Sept. 6, 2013, at his residence in Salina. Police, who were called to the residence by a Kansas State Parole officer, seized a distribution quantity of methamphetamine and the gun.

Sentencing is set for June 9. Both sides have agreed to recommend a sentence of five years in federal prison.

Grissom commended the Kansas Department of Corrections, the Salina Police Department, the I-135/I-70 Drug Task Force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Warner for their work on the case.
