A Barren County convicted felon is sentenced to 100 months in prison for theft of firearms.
Eric Stockton, 37, of Cave City pleaded guilty to being in possession of a firearm and entered an Alford plea to stealing a firearm from a licensed dealer.
The case stems from October 2014, where Stockton allegedly burglarized Horton's Guns.
During a traffic stop months later in February 2015, Kentucky State Police discovered a stolen firearm from the burglary in the car and two other firearms from a witness who stated Stockton gave him and his father the weapons.
In all, authorities say Stockton stole and possessed eight firearms - valued at $6,488.
Only three of the eight were recovered.
Stockton is convicted felon with prior gun theft convictions.
