North Adams man gets more prison time for weapons charges

A North Adams man is getting more prison time after admitting to weapons charges.

Varian Lefebvre, 30, pleaded guilty in Berkshire Superior Court earlier this month to two counts of possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card and being an armed career felon.

The weapons charges stemmed from a September 2020 arrest. Investigators found an illegal firearm and ammunition in his bedroom of an apartment at Brayton Hill Terrace. The armed career felon charge stems from a 2018 conviction in a drug case.

Lefebvre received a total of 3 years in prison on these charges. This is separate from the 4 to 7 years he is serving in federal prison on an unrelated case. He and co-conspirator Keith Larrabee distributed drugs from their apartment, prosecutors said.
