Felon sentenced for possessing dozens of firearms, meth

TACOMA, Wash. — A Washington man was sentenced in federal court to almost five years in prison for illegally possessing firearms and trafficking meth.

Daniel Ague Masters was prohibited from having firearms because of a felony conviction.

But officials found two dozen guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his underground bunker and garage in Rainer.

The firearms included a submachine gun and a rifle with a high-capacity magazine.

Sources told officials that Masters traded meth for stolen firearms.

Masters pleaded guilty in 2019 to the firearms charge and possession of meth with intent to distribute.

A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced him to 57 months in prison.
