SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A former Northern California police commander has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for possession of stolen firearms that at some point crossed state lines.

The Monterey Herald (https://bit.ly/1ybRVgj) reports a federal court sentenced John Nyunt Tuesday and also ordered him to pay a $5,000 fine and $10,000 in restitution to the Pacific Grove Police Department, where he served as commander.

Nyunt admitted in December to duping the police academy at Monterey Peninsula College where he taught into giving him more than two dozen guns. The academy was closing in 2009 and thought it was donating the guns to the Pacific Grove Police Department.

The department never wanted the guns and Nyunt kept them for himself. He sold most of them and gave others away.
