A Pittsburgh man was sentenced in federal court on Thursday to four years in prison, to be followed by three years of  supervised release for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to United States Attorney Scott W. Brady.

LaRon Hollaman, 29, received his sentence from United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon who said that Hollaman must serve this sentence consecutive to any state parole

Court documents allege that on May 6, 2017 Hollaman was stopped by a Robinson Township police officer at a GetGo gas station after he observed Hollaman engage in suspicious drug activity in the parking lot of a nearby hotel.

When the officer asked Hollaman for his license and car registration he responded “I just did six up at State,” referring to serving time at a state prison.

Hollaman told the police officer “There are two guns loaded underneath the front passenger seat,” prosecutors said.

After removing Hollaman from the car and handcuffing him, police found two loaded Glock pistols which were reported stolen from a home in Pittsburgh.

At the time of his arrest Hollaman was on parole for a carjacking and two weapons convictions.  He has an extensive criminal past that includes arrests for illegal drug possession as well as assault.
