A Baltimore man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison yesterday for possessing a stolen gun. City police said officers investigating a reported carjacking saw Gerard Merle Holt, 27, riding in a car at Edmondson Avenue and Pulaski Street in May 2004. They stopped the vehicle and discovered a loaded .357 caliber Taurus revolver in a holster on Holt's side. Holt did not have a permit to carry the handgun, which had been stolen Oct. 30, 2000, in Martinsburg, W.Va.
