SPOKANE, WA - A Yakima man will spend nine years in federal prison for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

26-year-old Antonio Victor Mirelez was arrested by Yakima Police after he tried to run away from officers during a traffic stop.

On February 1, 2013, Yakima Police officers initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle Mirelez was driving. The law enforcement officers apprehended Mirelez after he attempted to flee.

The officers then discovered an Enfield rifle, .303 caliber, model No. 4 MK1 inside the vehicle Mirelez had been driving.

Mirelez was charged with being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm and he pleaded guilty to that crime on July 23, 2013.

Mirelez will serve three years of court supervision when he's released from jail in 112 months.
