A Connecticut man pleaded guilty to the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon.
Allen Evans, age 35, of Hartford, made the plea on Tuesday, Sept. 21, in New Haven, said Leonard C Boyle, Acting US Attorney for the District of Connecticut.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in October 2020, Hartford Police stopped a car in which Evans was a passenger. Evans was arrested after a search of his person revealed a loaded Taurus Model 85 “.38 Special” handgun, and a search of the vehicle revealed additional ammunition.
At the time of his arrest, Evans was on state probation following a conviction in 2018 for possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle.
Evans has been detained since his arrest.
Judge Meyer scheduled sentencing for December.
