Irving man gets 14 years in federal prison for having unregistered guns, dealing cocaine and heroin

Feds say Ramon Navarro III possessed devices that turn semiautomatic weapons into machine guns, as well as six pistols already outfitted with the mechanisms.

An Irving man was sentenced Monday to 14 years in federal prison for possessing multiple unregistered firearms and drug trafficking, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas announced.

In March, 23-year-old Ramon Navarro III pleaded guilty to four counts of an unregistered firearm and eight counts of distribution of controlled substances, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a news release.

Navarro, who called himself “Trae Alvarez,” was not offered a plea deal. Sentencing was by U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay.

According to court documents, Navarro had four machine gun conversion sears, which are three-piece devices designed to convert semiautomatic weapons into machine guns. He also had six Glock pistols, each with a conversion sear installed.

 

Navarro admitted that none of the firearms was registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

He also admitted to trafficking cocaine and heroin, the office said. It is unclear how much of the substances he distributed.

 

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Dallas Field Division and the Dallas Police Department.
