Washington man pleads guilty to stealing guns from flooded homes

(AP) – A Washington man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for stealing guns from homes that had been evacuated during last year’s floods. 21 year old Benjamin Willett pleaded guilty in U-S District Court in Davenport for unlawful possession of firearms. The U-S attorney’s office says Willett, and two other men broke in to at least four Coralville homes that had been evacuated and stole at least 25 guns. Police searched the men’s apartments and found 16 stolen guns, after an undercover officer bought one of them from the men.
