SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A 33-year-old Sulphur man was sentenced on multiple weapon charges Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi handed down a 15-year sentence to Todd Allen Booth, who pleaded guilty to possession of firearms by a convicted felon on March 27.

Booth, who was also sentenced to five years of supervised released, was one of four people arrested July 10, 2012, after officers discovered eight firearms, several grams of meth and stolen merchandise at a home in Sulphur.

Authorities said Booth had previously been convicted of burglary and simple burglary.
