Convicted felon receives maximum sentence for firearm possession


A Columbus man has been convicted to 10 years in jail for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

37-year-old Allandoe Cortez Boyd received the maximum sentence.

According to a release, the evidence showed that back on October 5, 2016 police officers served a search warrant at Boyd’s residence in connection with alleged possession of stolen car parts.

During the course of the search, officers recovered several car parts cannibalized from stolen vehicles. Additionally, they seized four firearms, including an AK-47 semi-automatic rifle with a 50 round magazine. All four weapons were fully loaded. Adjacent to one of the firearms, police found a quantity of heroin, a digital scale, and various packaging materials. In a back bedroom of the residence, officers found a backpack containing over 400 rounds of rifle, handgun, and shotgun ammunition.

The release also states that Boyd has at least six prior felony convictions dating back to 1999.

The investigation was conducted by the Columbus Police Department and the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney
Melvin E. Hyde.
