ST. LOUIS, MO – United States District Judge Stephen R. Clark sentenced Keyshawn Brown to 45 months in prison today. The 23-year-old St. Louis, Missouri resident pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of ammunition.
On December 2, 2019, officers with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department were informed someone was driving a stolen car in the area of Goodfellow and St. Louis Avenues. The officers pursued the car and deployed spike strips, which caused the car to stop in the middle of the street. Brown, who was the driver, got out of the car and fled the scene. Brown was detained a short distance away by officers.
After interviewing others in the stolen car, officers went to a residence in St. Ann. After further investigation, officers seized two boxes of Federal Ammunition 300 Savage. During an interview with Brown, he told officers that he and two others bought the two boxes of Federal Ammunition 300 Savage from the Cabela’s in Hazelwood, Missouri. Brown stated he then took the ammunition to the residence in St. Ann and tried to load it into a double drum magazine for a “chopper,” but realized he had bought the wrong ammunition.
Investigators learned Brown is a previously convicted felon.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Tom Mehan is handling the case.
