A man from Indiana accused of selling illegal weapons



Indianapolis, Indiana – An Indiana man was charged on Monday with one count of trafficking in unauthorized firearms by a grand jury.

According to investigators, David Joseph Mull, 51, of North Vernon, was in charge of selling more than 500 firearms to one person for more than $350,000. Mull also exchanged $56,850 for 90 weapons from another party.

Investigators claim that Mull purchased the weapons from gun exhibitions and then sold them to other people. According to the investigators, he was aware that the weapons he sold would be shipped to Mexico.

When someone questioned Mull about why he did not have a physical storefront, Mull responded, “I don’t want anybody to know. Nobody should be informed about it, please. I’ll keep acquiring items; perhaps we can keep doing a lot of business, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Mull received a cease-and-desist letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives in 2016 warning him that it was illegal to operate a business dealing in firearms without a license. Nevertheless, according to federal investigators, he kept selling guns until March 2023.

Mull may spend up to five years in prison if found guilty.
