Huntington Burgler Sentenced to Federal Prison for Firearm Possession
On June 7, 2013, officers with the Huntington Police Department responded to a burglary in progress at Sycamore Street in Huntington. Police entered the residence and found Fizer in a bedroom with a .45 caliber pistol lying within his reach. Fizer, who was arrested, waived his Miranda rights and told police that he had possessed the firearm for approximately a week.
The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Huntington Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution.
The case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in the United States by networking existing local programs targeting gun crime.
