LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – An Omaha man who was caught napping with guns in a parked car will spend nearly four years behind bars, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Cortez Davieon Grennell, 22, was sentenced Wednesday to 46 months in prison for being a prohibited person in possession of firearms.

On April 11, authorities were sent to an area near 30th Street and Sorensen Parkway to check a vehicle that had been parked and running for two hours.

They found Grennell asleep inside.

Officers opened the door and, in plain view, saw a sawed-off shotgun and handgun, according to the attorney’s office.

Grennell later told officers that he was addicted to meth.

The attorney’s office said it is a federal crime for someone “that is an unlawful user of, or addicted to, a controlled substance to possess a firearm.”

After his prison sentence, Grennell will serve a three-year term of supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system.
