PURVIS —  

PURVIS, Miss. (AP) — A federal judge has delayed until March 28 the sentencing hearing for a Hattiesburg man charged with stealing guns and other items from an FBI agent's car.

The sentencing for Cameron Undrae Eatmon had been scheduled for Tuesday.

Eatmon was charged last year with stealing government property and two counts of receiving, possessing, concealing, bartering or selling stolen firearms. He pleaded guilty to the count charging him with stealing body armor, ammunition and several guns from a parked FBI vehicle.

Eatmon was recently sentenced to serve 40 years on state charges related to a 2011 rape and aggravated assault.

He pleaded guilty to committing that crime while he was out on federal bond for allegedly burglarizing the FBI vehicle.
