Federal sentencing of former Kitsap cop delayed

Roy Alloway, the former drug detective targeted in a federal gun selling probe, won’t be sentenced in federal court just yet. 

Alloway, a longtime Bremerton police officer, pleaded guilty in October to unlawful dealing in firearms and filing a false income tax return (both felonies) in  U.S. District Court.

He was to be sentenced Jan. 20 but the case has been delayed, according to Emily Langlie, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle. He’s now set for sentencing Feb. 23.

The South Kitsap resident, 56, worked inside both the West Sound Narcotics Enforcement team and the Bremerton Police’s Special Operations Group. He was especially well known for his marijuana enforcement efforts.

He ran into trouble, the feds say, purchasing nearly 400 guns from three different federally licensed firearms dealers between January 2005 and November 2010. He sold pistols to undercover ATF agents at gun shows without the proper licenses. Federal prosecutors believe he did so to make a profit.

I’ll keep you posted on the case.

  1. They need to throw the book at this guy, anyone, especially a police officer who helps add to unregistered guns out there with the possibility of his “brother officers” or an innocent person hurt with any of these weapons is the worst type of offender.; same class of swine as a child abuser. No excuse for past good, blah blah blah, he is a crook, one of the worst kind, one who knows how the system works and how to get around it and not caring what damage his knowledge does.

  2. how much other ileagle stuff did he do is the county going to over turn some of his convictions because he was dirty or just look the other way like allways when stuff like this happens

  3. shorty is back again i bet he dont get jail time because he was a cop and might get hurt in jail by some one he put their aint nothing like a dirty cop that protects us oh boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
