A Michigan City man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to making a false statement to a licensed firearms dealer during the purchase of a gun.
According to court documents, from June 2020 to July 2021, Jonathan Tyler Lee, 25, purchased at least 19 guns from gun stores throughout the area.
While making the firearm purchases, Lee provided false information on an ATF form.
Several firearms recovered from crime scenes in Chicago were found to have been purchased by Lee.
Some of the firearms were also recovered from felons, and at least one was used to shoot at a moving car.
