Benton, Ill. – A Troy, Illinois man will spend more than two years in prison for illegally

possessing firearm ammunition. Troy A. Schrage, 37, was sentenced today to 30 months in federal

prison for being a Felon in Possession of Ammunition.

The offense occurred in April of 2020, when the United States Marshals Service located Schrage in

Belleville,  Illinois,  and  arrested  him  for  multiple  active  warrants.   The  ammunition  was

 found  in Schrage’s  possession  during  the  arrest.  Federal  law  prohibits  convicted  felons 

from  possessing firearms and firearm ammunition. A federal grand jury indicted Schrage in June of

2020, and a Benton, Illinois, jury convicted Schrage of the offense after a two-day trial in June


As part of his sentence, Schrage was ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release after

release from prison.

The investigation was conducted by the United States Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive

Task Force; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); and the Cahokia Police


The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys John Trippi and Daniel Kapsak.
