Local man receives jail sentence for gun theft

A local man who burglarized a sporting goods store in Queensbury and stole several guns will spend 20 months in a federal prison.

Gary N. Moore, 23, of Whitehall received the sentence last Wednesday in U.S. District court. He will also spend three years on parole after he is released.

Moore also pleaded guilty to another burglary in Granville and will serve 1 to 3 years in state prison for that offense.

Moore was one of three men who broke into John’s Outdoor Sports in July of 2010 and stole four handguns and three rifles to support a heroin habit.

Shawn Mahar, 22, and Joshua Brown, 23, both of Granville, have also pleaded guilty in connection to that case.
