Minneapolis Felon Pleads Guilty to Illegal Gun Possession
MINNEAPOLIS – A Minneapolis man pleaded guilty to illegally possessing firearms as a felon.
According to court documents, in March 2021, Minneapolis Police officers received information that 33-year-old Brandon Thomas was engaged in drug and gun trafficking.
Officers executed a search warrant at a storage locker in Minneapolis that had been leased by Thomas since approximately October 2020. Officers recovered from the storage locker seven guns.
Because Thomas has prior felony convictions, including a 2009 federal carjacking conviction in Minnesota, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.
