A Hoover gang member and Portland resident was sentenced to federal prison last week for illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. 31-year-old Anthony Devion Bagsby was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison and 3 years of supervised release.
According to court documents, as part of an ongoing federal racketeering investigation of the Hoover gang, law enforcement obtained photos online of Bagsby, a convicted felon, possessing firearms. Further investigation revealed that Bagsby frequented an apartment occupied by known Hoover Criminal Gang members on Halsey Street in northeast Portland.
On April 16, 2021, while executing a federal search warrant on the apartment, investigators arrested Bagsby and several other individuals. They found a loaded Springfield XD-40 handgun in a basket in the kitchen. Three of the rounds found in the handgun were colored blue. In the living room, investigators found several items connected to Bagsby, including prescription medication and mail. In the same area, they found an empty magazine; several dozen 9mm cartridges; four .40 caliber rounds including one blue round matching the bullets found in the loaded handgun, and a plastic bag of methamphetamine. Investigators later located text messages on Bagsby’s phone wherein he bragged about obtaining a “brand new XD 40.”
On July 20, 2021, a federal grand jury indicted Bagsby on two counts of illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. On October 18, 2022, he pleaded guilty.
