A federal judge in Brownsville sentenced a former Palm Valley police officer to more than two years in federal prison.
37 year-old Ramon Martinez pleaded guilty to dealing firearms without a license. Investigators say he bought firearms from licensed dealers and private citizens then resell them for a profit. Some of the weapons were recovered in Mexico and traced to Martinez.
