An Oregon man found with multiple weapons in Willows has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for drug and firearms offenses committed in California.

Joshua Anthony Bond of Grants Pass was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Sacramento for trafficking in controlled substances and for being a felon in possession of firearms.

The California Highway Patrol spotted Bond speeding on Interstate 5 in Glenn County in 2013.

Bond lost control after a high-speed chase that ended in a residential neighborhood in Willows, 85 miles north of Sacramento.

Prosecutors say Bond, who is 25, threw a loaded handgun onto a residential street during the chase. Officers seized a submachine gun, shotgun, ammunition, methamphetamine and two body armor plates from his vehicle.

Bond's attorney, Benjamin Galloway, did not immediately return a message.
