Elk Grove Man Sentenced to 10 Years For Selling Meth, Firearms Including AR 15 to Undercover Agent

February 22, 208 |  

An Elk Grove man was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Sacramento today following his convictions for selling narcotics and firearms. 
David Guevara-Pimentel, 24, of Elk Grove, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for dealing firearms without a license, illegal possession of a machine gun, and distribution of methamphetamine.  
According to evidence introduced during the trial, over a nine month period between August 2014, and April 2015, on 19 separate occasions Guevara-Pimentel met with an undercover agent and sold him a variety of firearms, including a short-barreled shotgun, an unserialized AR-15-style rifle, and handguns. On many of these occasions, Guevara-Pimentel sold the agent methamphetamine, cocaine, or heroin. 
Guevara-Pimentel sold the undercover agent 49 firearms, many of which had the serial number or other identifying markings removed. When he was arrested in January 2016, Guevara-Pimentel was in possession of a fully automatic machine gun.
This case was the product of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the West Sacramento Police Department, and the Woodland Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy H. Delgado prosecuted the case.
