Gun Thief Sentenced to Five Years in Prison


One of the two men who stole guns from an Agency home last summer will spend the next few years behind bars.

Owen Spicer pleaded guilty last month to second-degree burglary, trafficking in stolen weapons and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Authorities had said Spicer and Wylie Trueblood broke into a vacant home in Agency on the Fourth of July, stealing three shotguns. At least one of the shotguns was later sold illegally.

At Spicer’s plea and sentencing hearing, Judge Kirk Daily sentenced him to five years in prison on both the burglary and trafficking charges. The 20-year-old Spicer also had his probation revoked from a 2017 robbery conviction, as Judge Daily reinstated the ten-year prison sentence that had been suspended. All of Spicer’s sentences will run concurrently. A charge of third-degree theft was dismissed.

The 20-year-old Trueblood pleaded guilty to similar charges last week, although he did not face the felon in possession of a firearm charge. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 13th.
