A once-deported illegal immigrant living in Indiana was sentenced in federal court to nine years in prison for illegally having a fully automatic weapon that he tried to sell on social media. 

In 2020, authorities found a social media post of Luis Rodriguez-Solorio, 24, firing a fully automatic Glock. The caption of the post listed the gun as up for sale. The weapon is considered a machine gun under federal law. 

He was arrested by Indiana police the same day authorities found the post after leading them on a high-speed chase and eventually crashing his car.

He confessed to having the gun, and police found the weapon, as well as multiple extended magazines, and a small amount of marijuana in a Fort Wayne home. 

Rodriguez-Solorio was previously deported to Mexico in 2017 after he was convicted of felony burglary, but later illegally reentered the country. 

He pleaded guilty this week to being a felon in possession of a firearm and reentry of a deported alien. 

He is now facing nine years in prison and two years of supervised release and is expected to be deported following his time in prison.
