Muscatine Man Sentenced for Possession of Ammunition
DAVENPORT, Iowa — The U.S. Attorney’s Office says a Muscatine man will spend 130 months in prison for felon in possession of ammunition.
Officials say on February 23, 2015, officers were notified of a burglary that took place in Bennet, Iowa, where a large gun safe containing ammunition and approximately 15 firearms–among other items–were reported stolen.
Authorities say 43-year-old Gregory Wayne Wieskamp and a co-defendant drove a vehicle with the stolen gun safe to Moscow, Iowa, before cutting the safe open and dividing the guns among those involved.
After obtaining a search warrant, officers searched Wieskamp’s residence and found a gun clip containing ammunition and a large television that were taken during the burglary.
Wieskamp also has a prior felony conviction for third degree burglary in 1995.
Following his release from prison, Wieskamp will serve a three-year term of supervised release.
