U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Toledo has returned a two-count indictment charging Steven Leskow, 30, of Bowling Green with one count of possession of a firearm by someone who is an unlawful user of, or addicted to, a controlled substance and one count of possession of stolen firearms.

According to the indictment, from October through December of 2019, while enrolled as a student at Owens Community College in Findlay, Leskow is accused of stealing several firearms from a law enforcement class.

It is alleged that Leskow stole these firearms and sold them to support a drug addiction.

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew D. Simko.
