ST. LOUIS – United States District Judge John A. Ross sentenced Randy Clark to 77 months in prison today. The 34-year-old St. Louis, Missouri resident pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On October 25, 2019, Clark was driving a vehicle with expired tags when officers from the North County Police Cooperative stopped him. At the time of the stop, Clark had a bag strapped to his torso. Police learned Clark was wanted as a suspect and asked him to exit the vehicle. Clark was initially non-compliant, but finally exited the vehicle after multiple requests.

Officers found a .40 caliber semiautomatic firearm in the bag around Clark’s torso. The firearm was loaded with nine rounds of ammunition. 

The North County Police Cooperative investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Jason Dunkel is handling the case.
