A McHenry man, who is a convicted felon, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for “gunrunning” where he sold stolen guns to people that did not have a FOID card.
Gustavo A. Munoz, 46, of McHenry, was indicted in April 2021 on two counts of gunrunning, aggravated possession of a stolen firearm, three unlawful possession of weapons by a felon, two counts of unlawful possession of ammunition by a felon, six counts of unlawful sale or transfer of a firearm, and residential burglary.
A grand jury indictment said that Munoz sold at least three guns to people who did not possess a FOID card.
The guns included a Rock Island Armory 1911 pistol, Remington 870 shotgun and Henry lever-action rifle.
Police recovered multiple rounds of pistol, shotgun and rifle ammunition in Munoz’s possession.
A McHenry woman was also charged in connection with helping sell the stolen guns. Prosecutors dismissed the charges against her in January 2022.
The indictment said that Munoz burglarized a home in the 6700 block of Normandy Drive in Spring Grove on November 1, 2020.
It is unclear if any of the guns were stolen from that burglary.
Munoz was taken into custody in June 2021. Court documents show he has numerous felony convictions dating back to at least 2002.
Munoz has been held in the McHenry County Jail on a $250,000 bond since his arrest, jail records show.
Court records show Munoz entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
He pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of gunrunning, a Class 1 felony, in exchange for the rest of his charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis approved the plea deal and sentenced Munoz to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
His sentence will be served at 75% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.
