COUNCIL BLUFFS — Authorities say a 24-year-old Council Bluffs man has been sentenced to 51 months in prison for illegally possessing a machine gun.
Federal prosecutors say Jordan Collier was sentenced Thursday. He must serve a year of supervised release after he leaves custody.
He had pleaded guilty Feb. 8.
Collier was arrested after he attempted to pawn the weapon. Authorities say it was stolen from a home in Kossuth County, Iowa.
