A 911 call of a disturbance at a D’Iberville apartment didn’t end well for a man on probation who was found with drugs and firearms.

Dandre Dshon Evans, 34, from Biloxi, will serve 12 1/2 years in a federal prison on firearms convictions. But first, he must finish serving his time on two state drug convictions. His probation on the drug convictions has been revoked.

A federal judge also fined Evans $10,000 at his sentencing on Wednesday.

Evans’ arrest came after D’Iberville police received a call about a disturbance Aug. 28 at the Landmark at D’Iberville apartment complex. The apartments are on Lamey Bridge Road.

Police went to an apartment where Evans and his girlfriend each accused the other of simple assault, a court document says.

Police found a loaded 9mm pistol reported stolen from a D’Iberville firearms dealer in 2011 in the apartment. Under a bed, they found ecstasy and prescription drugs. They called the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Evans admitted the pistol and drugs were his, an agent said in an affidavit.

A search of Evans’ Biloxi home turned up two loaded firearms, and officers later found Evans owned other weapons including an SKS rifle, court papers show. An SKS is a semi-automatic weapon.

Evans was convicted on possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance in June 2017 and in May 2006, according to a document that requested a federal arrest warrant.

Evans pleaded guilty in October on two counts of felon in possession of a firearm.

U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden sentenced him Wednesday.

Ozerden ordered Evans to serve 151 months consecutive to the prison term he will serve for having his state probation revoked, Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst said.

The Drug Enforcement Administration assisted in the investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Annette Williams prosecuted the case.
