A New York man with a felony on his record who was caught last year possessing a loaded pistol in Augusta was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison.

Camby Wilson, 22, was sentenced at federal court in Bangor to 24 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to an announcement from the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maine.

In March 2022, an Augusta police officer stopped a vehicle in which Wilson was a passenger, officials said. Wilson provided officers a false name and date of birth.

When officers asked Wilson to step out of the vehicle and asked if he had any weapons on him, he ran off. Police chased him on foot and apprehended him after a brief pursuit, according to officials.

The announcement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maine said officers found a loaded .380-caliber pistol in Wilson’s jacket pocket. A 2019 felony conviction in New York made it illegal for him to possess a firearm.

Wilson pleaded guilty to the crime in February.
