Prosecutors said Colvin was prohibited from possessing firearms because of several felony convictions for theft, burglary, drugs and robbery and theft of a firearm in Winneshiek County, Iowa, and Osceola County, Florida.
On June 4, a Waterloo police officer stopped Colvin for a bad taillight at East 11th and Sycamore streets.
