A Valparaiso man was sentenced to more than four years in federal prison after pleading guilty to count one of an indictment charging him with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana said.

Peter Tryand, 52, was sentenced to 51 months in prison and two years of supervised released, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Tryand was also ordered to pay $942,384.20 in restitution.

Tryand devised a scheme to defraud federal licensed firearms dealers, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
