Lincoln Woman's Chili has Too Much Bang, Police Find Gun In Pot

Posted: Updated:

Some people may prefer their chili to have a kick but one Lincoln woman's pot had a little too much bang.

Danielle Cherecwich was sentenced to prison on firearm charges after authorities found a gun hidden in a pot of chili.

The 26-year-old received her sentence Tuesday and will serve six to nine years in prison.

She was arrested back in April on firearm charges, including being a felon possessing a firearm, after an officer stopped her car, which had reportedly been used in a failed attempt to pass a fake check.

Cherecwich was on parole out of Iowa at the time of her arrest.

An initial search didn't turn up any firearms, but when officers checked a container of chili at her feet they found a loaded handgun.
