BUFFALO – A convicted Jamestown felon found with a loaded shotgun during a traffic stop in 2020 will serve 57 months in prison in connection with the crime.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo announced the sentencing on Tuesday. 38-year-old Walter Duprey was previously convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

In April 2020 the vehicle Duprey was riding in was pulled over by Jamestown Police. After stating that he had a “bud on me,” Duprey was asked to step out of the car. During a search of Duprey, an officer found a shotgun shell in his pocket. While searching the car, officers say they recovered a loaded shotgun.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Jamestown Police Department and the FBI.
