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. A police K-9 alerted on the vehicle, and officers found two Xanax pills and a loaded .380-caliber Luger handgun with an obliterated serial number under a blanket in the bed of his pickup truck, according to court records.
