ELKHART, Ind. - An Elkhart man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Toby Ray Taylor, 36, was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release.

Police also found methamphetamine and marijuana in the vehicle, reports said.

Taylor has a prior felony conviction that prohibits him from having a firearm in his possession, law enforcement said.
