    Concealed carry weapons bust - 2 arrested for selling gun training certificates

    The Lucas County Sheriff's Office, along with the Wood County Sheriff's Office, worked with an informant to arrest two men who they say were helping people get concealed carry weapon (CCW) licenses.

    In order to receive a CCW, you're required to complete 12 hours of hand gun instruction and training. Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn told FOX Toledo Jason Hernandez of Perrysburg, and Michael Davenport of Northwood were selling completion certificates to people who never did any training.

    Hernandez and Davenport allegedly sold over 130 National Rifle Association certificates to people in Wood and Lucas counties. Approximately 110 false certificates were filed in Lucas County and 22 in Wood.

    Detectives believe some of the certificates were sold for as much as $300 a piece.

    Hernandez and Davenport are facing felony charges for this criminal activity that detectives say has been going on since 2004.

    But those who purchased the certificates are not in the clear. Detective Sergeant Scott Cook with the Wood County Sheriff’s Office says all those individuals are also facing a felony charge. Many have already been contacted but there are others who still need to turn themselves in.

    "If you have been involved in this and I have not contacted you we are not going to come to your house to arrest you," said Det. Sgt. Cook. "We ask that you come and turn yourself in or contact your local law enforcement agency. Any cooperation will go a long way."

    Sgt. Cook added his department is working with law enforcement agencies in other counties in Ohio and Michigan to possibly crack similar operations.

    Interesting read, and I'm curious how it will play out.

    Thanks for posting that Lukem.

  6. I have to ask why? If you are spending $300, why not just take the damn class?

    The Wiphe and I were talking about this and I think that the report may be a tad off. Maybe it was $30 not $300... ?????????

    Glad they got caught, like someone else said why not just take the class? It's fun and I enjoyed it. Always people trying to cut corners...

    Lazy! Also, many who bought the bogus certificates, were likely not capable of qualifying under the law for a CCW permit.
