St. Paul Felon Pleads Guilty to Illegal Firearm Possession

MINNEAPOLIS – A St. Paul man has pleaded guilty for the possession of a firearm as a felon, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.

According to court documents on July 23, 2021, Ember Shawndale White, 23, was found in possession of a Beretta APX 9x19mm pistol. Because White has multiple prior felony convictions in Ramsey, Hennepin, and Dakota Counties, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.

White pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of possessing a firearm as a felon in U.S. District Court before Judge Joan N. Ericksen.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the St. Paul Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew S. Ebert is prosecuting the case.
