A Michigan City resident has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana is reporting.

Jason Anderson, 39, was sentenced to 180 months in prison and two years of supervised release, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

“According to documents in this case, on or around March of 2017, Anderson possessed one or more firearms after having been convicted of serious drug offenses in both Indiana and Illinois,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. “The court sentenced Anderson under the Armed Career Criminal Act due to his prior offenses.”

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, with assistance from the LaPorte County Drug Task Force and the Michigan City Police Department.
