Soeun Sun was convicted earlier this month of a burglary charge that was his third strike. He has previous strike convictions for robbery and assault.
The News Tribune reported Sun tried to sell many of the 41 guns that were taken in a 2001 break in. Authorities have recovered nine of the guns, including one allegedly used in a carjacking in Connecticut.
Pierce County Superior Court Judge James Orlando chastised Sun for not working with prosecutors on a plea deal that could have spared him the life sentence.
