Rapid City man sentenced to prison for possessing stolen guns

RAPID CITY, S.D. -A Rapid City man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for having a stash of stolen firearms.

Cory Myers, 45, was sentenced after reaching a plea deal with the federal government over the illegal possession of firearms.

Authorities say Myers was discovered to have 20 stolen guns when, in January 2019, he came into contact with Rapid City police officers at a hotel.

Also arrested with Myers was 37-year-old Esmeralda Stands.

Stands was sentenced last month to time served and three years of supervised release for being in possession of a stolen revolver.
