MADISON, Wis. -

A Monroe man has been sentenced to prison for stealing guns from a business.

Daniel Kundert, 22, was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge William Conley to 70 months in prison for stealing guns from Hunting Woodlands in Monroe, a business which was federally licensed to sell firearms.

His prison term will be followed by three years of supervised release.

Kundert pleaded guilty to the charge on Aug. 30.

On May 17, 2010, Kundert rode his bike to the business. He cut the phone wire and threw a brick through the window to see if police would respond prior to entering the building, according to federal prosecutors.

When he determined that no police would respond, he entered the business and stole five firearms. To date, four of the five guns have been recovered, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

Kundert traded one of the guns for oxycontin pills. He used another one of the guns to commit an armed robbery and steal oxycontin pills, according to the release.

In sentencing Kundert, the judge acknowledged Kundert's drug addiction but also noted his "astounding" criminal history, the seriousness of the offenses, and that Kundert squandered opportunities for drug treatment.
