Career criminal gets 15 years on gun charge

BUFFALO – A Cheektowaga man who was convicted of being an armed career criminal in possession of a firearm, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.  

Kevin Zimmerman, 24, was previously convicted in State Court in 2010 of four counts of Attempted Burglary. Zimmerman then stole two firearms during the commission of burglaries in 2012 making him a felon in possession of firearms which he then sold to Gander Mountain and the Buffalo Gun Center. 

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Daniel Derenda, and the U.S. Marshal’s Violent Felony Fugitive Task Force.
