WAUBUN (KBRF) - A Waubun man has been handed a five year prison sentence for a felon in possession of a firearm.

Sentenced Wednesday in Becker County District Court, 26 year old Stephen Stone must serve the 60-month term from his arrest in November following a traffic stop.

During a search of the vehicle at the stop, officers found paper bindles associated with selling drugs that tested positive for the toxic drug fentanyl, and also found a handgun in the glove box.

A prior controlled substance conviction in March of 2017 prohibits Stone from possessing any firearm or ammunition. Two drug possession charges were dismissed in the case and Stone was also credited for 90 days served.
