An Elkhart man has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal weapons charge.

It was during November 2019 to January 2020, when 31-year-old Darnell Verner visited gun stores on eight occasions and obtained a firearm each time despite having been convicted of multiple prior felony offenses.

Of the eight firearms Verner obtained, one semi-automatic rifle was recovered when he tried to sell it back.

The whereabouts of the seven other firearms remain unknown.

Verner’s prior convictions include aggravated unlawful use of a weapon as well as delivery of crack cocaine and heroin.
