CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids man previously convicted of arson, burglary and manufacturing meth has pleaded guilty to a federal gun crime after he was found with a rifle and 237 rounds of ammunition.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says 51-year-old Robert Hertz pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one count of possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon. ­

Court documents, which call Hertz a "career criminal", say he was found with a .40 caliber rifle and the 237 rounds of ammunition on May 12.

Hertz faces a minimum 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

A sentencing date has not been set.
