gunCEDAR RAPIDS – A man who stole a gun from a Cedar Rapids gun store was convicted by a jury today after a 2-day trial in federal court in Cedar Rapids.

Dante Glinn from Cedar Rapids was convicted of theft of a firearm from a licensed dealer. The verdict was returned following about four hours of deliberations.

The evidence at trial showed that, on August 25, 2015, Glinn walked into Sports Outfitters, a Cedar Rapids gun store, reached behind the counter, and stole a .45 caliber Kimber pistol before fleeing the scene. Surveillance videos captured Glinn stealing the pistol. Testimony at trial established that Glinn used an alias to get medical treatment at a local hospital for a wound visible in the videos the same evening as the theft.

Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Glinn remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, $100 in special assessments, and 3 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.

The case was investigated by the Cedar Rapids Safe Street Task Force. The task force is composed of representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Drug Enforcement Administration; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement; United States Marshals Service; Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation; Cedar Rapids Police Department; Marion Police Department; Sixth Judicial District Department of Correctional Services; Linn County Sheriff’s Office; and Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jacob Schunk.
