SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A 23-year-old from Savannah pled guilty to federal gun charges this week.

DeVonte Shyheem Green pled guilty to possessing a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

On March 31, Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department officers attempted to arrest Green on an outstanding warrant for possession of multiple firearms, drugs and digital scales.

Green fled from police but was apprehended after a chase. According to the Department of Justice release, Green was found to have another firearm, drugs and another digital scale in his possession.

After his guilty plea, Green faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison with a maximum of life. Green also faces a fine up to $250,000 and five years of supervised release upon release from prison.

There is no parole in the federal system.

Green remains in U.S. Marshal custody and will be sentenced after the U.S. Probation Office completes an investigation.
