Convicted Felon Sentenced In Federal Court on Weapons Charges

Indianapolis Man Convicted Of Illegal Possession of a Handgun and Two Assault-Style Semiautomatic Rifles

Indianapolis – United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced today the sentencing of an Indianapolis man for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  Adrian Bullock, 26, was sentenced to 41 months imprisonment by U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson in federal court.

“Mr. Bullock terrorized Indianapolis neighborhoods with gun violence for many years,” said Minkler.  “He will now have time to think about his crime in the Bureau of Prisons.”

On April 8, 2014, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) officers received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle near the 1700 block of N. Oxford Street on the City’s near-Eastside.  When officers arrived, they located the suspicious vehicle and saw Bullock get out of it and walk away.  Officers recovered a .40 caliber handgun and two assault style semiautomatic rifles in the vehicle, all of which were fully loaded.  

Bullock may not legally possess a firearm because he has two felony convictions for narcotic-related crimes.  

This case was investigated by the IMPD and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

According to Assistant United States Attorney MaryAnn T. Mindrum, who prosecuted this case for the government, Bullock must serve three years of supervised release following completion of incarceration.
