Damone Holcombe, 28, the last of the five members of Buffalo’s former Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation street gang to be convicted, pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio to possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance.

U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr., said the Grant Street resident now faces a prison term of up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine at his sentencing shortly by U.S. Chief District Judge William M. Skretny.

In the midst of a crackdown on the Almighty Latin street gang, Erie County sheriff’s deputies found a 7.62mm semi-automatic rifle, a digital scale with cocaine and marijuana residue and a bag of marijuana in Holcombe’s trousers pocket when they raided his Grant Street home on Sept. 21, 2011. Federal agencies assisted in the crackdown, Hochul said.
