A former member of the California National Guard has been sentenced to one year in prison for possessing a stolen machine gun.

US District Judge Morrison England Junior imposed the sentence on 40-year-old Stephen Gooden.

Court documents say Gooden along with 28-year-old Luis Castro of Sacramento were members of the California National Guard and stole two M-4 machine guns from the Guard's armory in Lodi.

Gooden then sold the machine guns to non-authorized persons in Stockton.

ATF agents recovered the machine guns in an undercover operation.

Castro was sentenced last month to 20 months in prison.
