Former North Randall police officer convicted of selling firearms to felons

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

A former police officer was convicted of illegally selling firearms to people he knew were felons, said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cleveland office.

Kevin R. Lumpkin, 29, of North Olmsted, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 29.

A jury convicted him after a weeklong trial of selling a Hi-Point .45-caliber rifle and a Ruger .380-caliber pistol on different occassions to people he knew were convicted of felonies and therefore forbidden from possessing a firearm. These sales took place between 2011 and 2013, when Lumpkin was a North Randall police officer, according to trial testimony.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys M. Kendra Klump and Edward Feran following an investigation by the FBI.
