CEDAR RAPIDS – A man who stole a semiautomatic firearm with a 16-round magazine from Fleet Farm in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and ran from the store was sentenced today to five years in federal prison.

Dalyn Jamil Culp, age 19, from Waterloo, Iowa, received the prison term after a December 11, 2020 guilty plea to theft of a firearm from a federal firearms licensee.

In a plea agreement, Culp admitted he stole a Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol from Fleet Farm in Cedar Falls on February 27, 2020, and fled from the store. Law enforcement was able to find photographs on Culp’s cell phone where he was wearing pants that matched the pants worn by the perpetrator in the surveillance video obtained from Fleet Farm. There was also a video of a firearm with the same make and model as the stolen gun, as well as a photograph of the Fleet Farm barcode attached to the same make and model of firearm which was stolen.

Culp was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Culp was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment and fined $100. He was ordered to make restitution to Fleet Farm. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Culp 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 Elizabeth Dupuich and investigated by the Cedar Falls Police Department, the Waterloo Police Department, and the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

      People would have plenty to say if this would have been a white guy.

      This guy, like you, must be a top member of the brain trust, where only the best and bright get membership.

      It is well known that an enormous proportion of crimes are committed by men aged 15 to 25, and it is a fact that Black people are about seven to eight times more likely to commit crimes than others.

    Average iq in the low to mid 80’s. Taking pictures and posting them on social media while displaying the serial number of your very publicly stolen firearm. Wearing some stupid flashy idiot pants while doing it and then keeping said idiot gangsta pants after robbing fleet farm. IDK if you guys are seeing this but the child is a genius and society will suffer for his being incarcerated for just long enough to help him grow into a more capable strong arm robbery committing dip shit. I got one demand justice for our boy Big D. You can tell lookin at his face he’s a real thinker. In my opinion this innocent black male is a victim of Fleet Farms sistemic racist policy against committing theft and federal offenses. Fleet Farm has gone out of its way to express it’s intolerant hateful attitude toward P.O.C. Disgusting and abhorrent. His ancestors went through hell and back l, even fought for their civil rights, the right to steal from the white devil that oppressed them. Asab (all stores are bastards) BLM. SAVE THE WHALES, save a tree, wipe your ass with a hippy, #metoo, #hopedalyngetsbadtouched.
