St. Paul Felon Indicted for Illegal Possession of a Firearm

MINNEAPOLIS – A federal grand jury returned an indictment against a St. Paul man for illegally possessing a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.

According to court documents, on May 2, 2022, Terrance Terrell Lane, 25, was found to be in possession of a Glock 30, .45 caliber handgun, equipped with an extended magazine and an auto sear, a device that turns a semi-automatic firearm into a fully automatic firearm. Because Lane has prior felony convictions in Hennepin County, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.

Lane is charged with one count of possessing a firearm as a felon. He made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court yesterday before Magistrate Judge David T. Schultz.

This case was jointly investigated by the FBI, the Minneapolis Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Hennepin County Violent Offenders Task Force, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Dakota County Probation, and Hennepin County Probation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lindsey E. Middlecamp is prosecuting the case.

An indictment is merely an allegation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
