Milford man sentenced to federal prison in on gun charge
Richard Ouellette, 28, of Milford was previously convicted of being an accomplice to armed robbery in the holdup of Hans Market in Manchester in 2004, which brought him a three-year sentence at the New Hampshire State Prison.
Federal law prohibits felons from owning or possessing firearms or ammunition.
The federal charge against Ouellette stemmed from a January 2011 undercover investigation. Ouellette sold a stolen German Makarov 9mm pistol and ammunition to DEA agents.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives subsequently determined the pistol was taken in a burglary at a Deering residence.
