     ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A Leesburg man is set to plead guilty in a case where authorities say he and another man kept an FBI submachine gun stolen from the trunk of an agent's car.
     The Washington Examiner reports that 26-year-old Jonathan Cowden is scheduled to enter a plea deal Monday in federal court in Alexandria. Also charged is 26-year-old Nate Whilden of Clifton.
     According to an FBI affidavit, Whilden broke into a sedan parked in his neighborhood in February 2011 and found an FBI-issued Heckler and Koch submachine gun. According to the affidavit, Whilden took a bag from the trunk and only discovered later that the gun was FBI property.
     The affidavit states that Whilden later sold the gun to Cowden. It was found in a search of Cowden's apartment last year.
