A Marion man has been sentenced to ten years in prison in connection to a 2013 incident where he threatened the lives of police officers.

32-year-old Jeffrey Tosca, Jr., was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court, after he pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and possession of an unregistered firearm.

In September of 2013, Tosca made threats over the phone from his Marion home to shoot members of law enforcement, his father, and others. Police were soon able to secure the area around Tosca's home, and arrested him without incident. They seized a fully loaded revolver, a 12-guage sawed-off shotgun, and over 100 rounds of assorted ammunition.

Tosca had previously been convicted on gun and drug charges.

In addition to the ten year sentence, Tosca will have three years of supervised release.
