Waleed Lang of St. Croix Gets Probation For Mailing Himself A German-Made Titan Tier Gun
MAIL CALL: St. Croix’s Waleed Lang gets probation after mailing himself a German-made gun.
CHRISTIANSTED – A St. Croix man was sentenced in federal court to five years probation for admitting to illegally mailing himself a gun.
Waleed Lang, 33, got that sentence for “unlawful mailing of a firearm” from U.S. District Court Judge Raymond L. Finch on Tuesday, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.
Judge Finch also ordered Lang to pay a fine of $500 along with a special assessment of $100, Sharpe said.
On or about February 15, 2014, Lang knowingly mailed a U.S. priority mail parcel from Florida to St. Croix.
The parcel contained a Titan Tier .38 caliber revolver.
The case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alphonso Andrews, Jr.
