A search of Berry’s home on April 15, 2013, recovered a 9 mm rifle, two 9mm handguns, a .40 caliber handgun, and a .25 caliber handgun, as well as ammunition for the guns.

Estep, “Country,” of California, Md. was sentenced to 188 months in prison.
Allen, known as “Rock” and “Rahman Allen,” of Baltimore, previously pleaded guilty to his participation in the conspiracy and awaits sentencing.
