Bismarck Man Found Guilty on Federal Gun Charge

Posted: Updated:

A Bismarck man who was charged with illegally possessing a firearm was found guilty by a federal jury.

Dylan Romero, 34, also known as "Twist," was arrested after he contacted an undercover ATF agent and made arrangements to buy a handgun for $600 and an ounce of cocaine. The agent met with Romero on Sept. 26, 2012, in Bismarck. Romero gave him an ounce of fake cocaine and took the gun. He was immediately arrested.

Romero was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to eight felony convictions, including a 1998 burglary and several drug-related convictions. The charge of possession of firearm by a convicted felon carries a statutory maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

Sentencing for Romero is scheduled for Dec. 16, 2013, in U.S. District Court in Bismarck, N.D., at 9:45 a.m.
