Following an arrest and extensive investigation by the Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team (SVCGET), 34 year old Spokane resident Danial J. Dublin (convicted felon with a lengthy criminal history) was sentenced yesterday to 188 months in prison.

On 01/12/2013, the Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team arrested Dublin on the Federal Charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition. Dublin came to the attention of SVCGET as a result of his involvement in an unrelated investigation. Detectives were able to develop information that he was armed and, because of the prior felony convictions Detectives were aware of, it was unlawful for him to possess a firearm. When Detectives made contact with him he was armed and subsequently arrested for the violation.

The Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team consists of Officers from the Spokane Police Department, Spokane County Sheriff's Office, Washington State Patrol, U.S. Border Patrol, A.T.F, and the F.B.I.

This investigation is an example of collaboration between law enforcement agencies in Eastern Washington working to bring individuals threatening the safety of our community to justice.
