LISBON, Conn. (WTNH) — A Lisbon man was sentenced today for stealing a bunch of guns.

Forty-three-year-old Bernard McAllister was sentenced to nine years in prison, and five years of supervised release.

McAllister and 46-year-old Mark Missino of Waterford were arrested in Massachusetts in November 2010.
