KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Holmes County man has been sentenced for the part he played in stealing guns from a local gun store.
BREEZYNEWS.com reports Estelle Cook Jr. was sentenced to ten year in federal prison for illegally possession a gun.
He was also ordered to pay $16,000 back to the owner of the store.
The sentence stems from a July 29, 2014 burglary at Central MS Firearms in Kosciusko.
The burglary was captured on surveillance video and shows a man crawling on the floor with this face covered taking the firearms.
Cook and Corey Hughes were charged with breaking into the store and stealing 41 guns.
The pair then apparently sold those weapons in Lexington and Durant for $100 a piece.
Hughes pleaded guilty in the case and faces 10 years in prison.
He will be sentenced June 11.
