Three Toledo Men charged with gun crimes
Three Toledo men were charged in federal court on unrelated charges of being felons in possession of a firearm, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
“There is no place in Toledo or anywhere else for those would pack firearms in violation of the law,” Dettelbach said. “These individuals were all previously convicted of crimes which forbids them from possessing guns.”
Those charged are: Corey Saine, 34; Ocolar Macklin, 24; and Joshua Robinson, 20.
Saine was indicted on charges of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute and using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime, in addition to the felon in possession charge.
Saine was arrested on or about May 4, 2012 with 3.67 grams of crack cocaine and .38-caliber revolver, despite a previous conviction for felonious assault, according to court records.
Macklin was found on April 12, 2012 to be in possession of a .380-caliber semiautomatic pistol, despite a prior conviction for aggravated robbery, according to court records.
Robinson was found on March 22, 2012 to be in possession of a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol, despite a prior conviction for burglary, according to court records.
If convicted, the defendants’ sentences will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigating agency on these cases is the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Toledo, Ohio. The cases are being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Gene Crawford.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
