Heavily Armed Felon Sentenced

Iowa man gets federal prison time. Greig Norman Carlin, 48, of LeClaire, Iowa, was sentenced to 120 months of imprisonment for one count of possession of a sawed-off shotgun/rifle.

United States District Judge John A. Jarvey also ordered that Carlin will serve a term of 2 year’s supervised release following his incarceration and pay an assessment of $100 to Crime Victims Fund.

The case began on August 25, 2009, when the LeClaire P.D. responded to a 911 call that came back to Carlin’s residence. The caller informed the 911 operator that Carlin had a loaded gun in the house.

When officers arrived at the address they found the caller outside on the ground in a wooded area. She told officers that while she was in the garage the defendant entered, “cocked” the gun he was carrying and told her that “she needed to die.”

Following an altercation with officers, Carlin, who was armed with a baseball bat, was taken into custody.

A search of the residence located a Stevens .22/.410 single-shot over and under rifle/shotgun. It measured well under the legal limit, the barrel just over 12 inches and the overall length just under 19 inches.

Carlin is a convicted felon.
