A Portland, Oregon, man was sentenced to six years and five months in federal prison Monday for illegal firearm possession after 18 previous felony convictions, the Oregon U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Tyrone Lamont Allen, 53, fired a handgun during a Nov. 2021 altercation with his girlfriend while on post-prison supervision for bank robberies, subsequently denying he fired or possessed a firearm before claiming it belonged to her, according to the office’s press release. Allen pleaded guilty in April 2021 for multiple April 2017 bank and credit union robberies, receiving a time-served sentence with the prosecution’s support, Oregon Live reported.

Motor vehicle thefts and robberies in Portland surged by nearly 38.6% and 28.5% respectively from November 2021 through October 2022 compared to the previous 12 months, according to Portland Police Bureau data. Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s office prosecuted approximately 46% of misdemeanor theft cases presented by police from January through Nov. 21, KGW8 reported.
