DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was sentenced to 4 years in prison in Federal Court Tuesday.

Chase A. Crump, 27, of Dayton, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for possessing a firearm after having been convicted of a felony.

The Community Initiative to Reduce Gun Violence (CIRGV) announced the sentence handed down September 13 by U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice.

According to court documents, Dayton Police officers approached Crump as he was sitting in a parked car in the 1800 block of West Third Street on March 2. The officers saw Crump holding a plastic bag containing illegal drugs. One of the officers saw a pistol protruding from between the driver’s seat and the middle console and told Crump he was under arrest.
