NORTH RANDALL, Ohio– A former North Randall police officer learned his sentence in federal court on Tuesday.
Kevin Lumpkin, of North Olmsted, will spend five years in prison for selling firearms to people he knew were felons, the FBI said.
Last year, the 29-year-old was convicted of selling a Hi-Point .45-caliber rifle and Ruger .380-caliber pistol. Testimony revealed the sales happened while Lumpkin was a police officer.
Authorities found the pistol during a traffic stop on a suspect with an outstanding warrant. The FBI said they traced the recovered weapon back to Lumpkin.
According to the FBI, Lumpkin bought the firearms for two felons, knowing they were unable to buy guns with their prior convictions.
