CEDAR RAPIDS – A Waterloo man who ran from police with a firearm was sentenced on April 25, 2014 to almost four years in federal prison.

Ted Alfonso Scott, Jr., 23, from Waterloo, Iowa, received the prison term after a February 4, 2014 guilty plea to possession of a firearm by a felon.

In a plea agreement, Scott admitted he possessed two separate 9 millimeter pistols in Waterloo. In December 2013, the Waterloo Police Department responded to a report of shots fired. An officer responding to the scene observed an individual the officer later identified as Scott running from the scene. Police chased Scott as he ran up the external staircase of an apartment building with a pistol in his hand. Scott was later arrested and admitted to possessing the gun, which was found in the staircase. Scott also admitted he possessed a second firearm which officers found hidden in a Waterloo garage in July 2013. Scott was a felon, having been convicted of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver in Black Hawk County in 2011. Scott has a history of gang involvement.

Scott was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. He was sentenced to 46 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve a 3-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Scott is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Justin Lightfoot and investigated by the Waterloo Police Department’s Violent Crime Apprehension Team (VCAT) and Watch III patrol, with assistance from the Black Hawk County Attorney’s Office.
