ILLEGALLY SELLING FIREARMS

Home > Press Page

Friday, September 6, 2013A 25-year-old Chicago man is facing multiple charges for illegally selling four guns, at least one of which ended up in the hands of a convicted felon, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

Jevon StandbackJevon Standback has been charged with four counts of unlawful selling of a firearm and four counts of illegal transfer of a firearm.

The investigation began after a MAC-11 semi-automatic pistol was recovered July 24 in Harvey from the vehicle of a convicted felon who was injured in a crash after attempting to flee a Sheriff’s Police traffic stop.

The weapon was entered into the ATF database for tracing and came back registered to Standback.

The Sheriff’s Gun Suppression Unit and Sheriff’s Police Detectives learned that Standback sold four guns he originally purchased in Florida, including the pistol recovered July 24, to four people in March 2012.

The transaction took place near 101st Street and Eggleston Avenue in Chicago. No documentation was made of the transaction nor did the buyers present FOID cards.

Standback was taken into custody Wednesday and charged Thursday afternoon. He is scheduled to appear in bond court today at the George N. Leighton Criminal Court Building.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
