Columbia Man Indicted for Illegal Firearms

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Columbia, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for illegally possessing firearms and ammunition.

Adrian Lamont Levy, 23, of Columbia, was charged in a two-count superseding indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City, Mo. Today’s indictment replaces an Aug. 19, 2015, federal indictment and includes an additional charge of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

Today’s indictment alleges that Levy, who has been convicted of felony crimes, was in possession of a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol, a Kel Tec 9mm rifle, a Century Arms rifle, an SWD Incorporated pistol, a Glock 9mm pistol, a Metro Arms .45-caliber pistol and ammunition on Sept. 2, 2015.

The indictment also contains the original count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Levy allegedly was in possession of a Ruger 9mm pistol on July 4, 2015.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lawrence E. Miller. It was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Columbia, Mo., Police Department.
