Quanah Man Gets 33 Years for Having a Bulletproof Vest

A Quanah man has been sentenced to 33 years in prison for having a bulletproof vest.

After a two-day jury trial in Hardeman county, Dale Thomas Burns was found guilty of the Unlawful Possession of Body Armor.

In August 2014, investigators carried out a search warrant at the 53-year-old's home.

Authorities say the search warrant was issued because Burns removed an ankle monitor, which he was required to wear upon his release from prison.

During the search, they found a military-grade bulletproof vest, which convicted felons are not allowed to have in the State of Texas.
