Guilty plea in Nevada theft of trailer, hundreds of guns

News

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A 29-year-old ex-felon has pleaded guilty to stealing more than 200 firearms and ammunition from a truck and trailer parked at a Las Vegas-area casino in July 2018.

Federal prosecutors say Samual Lane Donesing of Las Vegas reversed his earlier not guilty plea and pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count each of possession of stolen firearms and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon.

Authorities say the weapons stolen outside Fiesta Henderson belonged to a licensed firearms dealer attending a gun show.

Donesing faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count at his sentencing set for Jan. 16, 2020. His prior convictions include forgery, vehicle theft and grand larceny.

A co-defendant, Jaemillah Eagans, has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial Jan. 27 on a federal firearm theft charge.
