NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk man was sentenced to 40 months in prison and three years of supervised release for illegally selling firearms on Tuesday, according to U.S. Attorney for Connecticut Deirdre M. Daly.

Raul Caban-Martes, 22, and others sold five firearms, ammunition and a bulletproof vest to a convicted felon. Caban-Martes knew that the purchaser intended to sell the firearms to others in Norwalk, Daly said.

Caban-Martes has been detained since his arrest on July 2. On Dec. 5, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to engage in the business of dealing in firearms without a license.

In December, while he was in federal custody, Caban-Martes instructed family members to conceal another firearm so that he could sell the weapon upon his release.

This matter was investigated by the Norwalk Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Vanessa Richards.
