A Cleveland man was sentenced to 17 1/2 years in prison for firearms trafficking.

Moises Perez, 45, previously pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of firearms. After being classified as an armed career criminal, the judge sentenced him to 210 months in federal prison.

According to court documents Perez sold a Ruger 9 mm pistol, an H&R .22-caliber revolver and 94 rounds of ammunition to an undercover agent in August 2014. At the time, he was forbidden from possessing firearm or ammunition because of nearly two-dozen convictions, including felony convictions for burglary, attempted felonious assault, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, attempted felonious assault with a firearm, attempted intimidation, drug trafficking, robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm. 


Perez's arrest was part of "Operation Samson II." The operation, based in Cleveland, resulted in 60 people being indicted and 110 firearms seized.
