Milford man sentenced to federal prison in on gun charge
CONCORD -- A Milford man was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
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.
