The Washington man caught on YouTube touting a collection of stolen guns has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The sentence stems from the July arrest of Ronnie “Ron Gotti” Wynn, 23, in connection with a suspected vehicle theft. After taking Wynn in, police discovered a YouTube video that showed the Vancouver, Wa., native driving around town shooting a pistol and an Airsoft rifle.

Police found another video showing Wynn’s stolen gun collection while investigating the initial arrest.

Wynn, who says he’s a Norteño gang member and heroin addict, pleaded guilty to five charges: discharging a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, trafficking stolen property, and forgery.
