Seven Teens From Wisconsin Were Arrested on Suspicion of Running a Business Making Fake Guns


KENOSHA, Wis. – In Wisconsin, seven teens were arrested after police found out they were running an alleged scheme to make and sell ghost guns.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office says that across Kenosha and Racine Counties on May 29, deputies and other police officers carried out five search warrants in the morning.

Seven people have been arrested as a result of the operation, which found a large-scale plan to make and sell guns.

On April 2, 2024, there was a break-in in Paddock Lake that led to the theft of several guns. The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office began looking into this scheme with this burglary.

On May 1, a worried mother called the police to say that her son was driving around Kenosha County with a bunch of guns in the car. At the same time, many people in the Silver Lake area called in reports of shots fired.

The car was pulled over for speeding, and the stolen guns from the April 2 crime were found inside. After the traffic stop, on May 1, two search warrants were carried out in Paddock Lake and Salem Lakes. More stolen guns were found there. It was proven that all of the guns that were found were stolen during the Paddock Lake break-in.

As of May 29, the investigation into this business that made and sold guns was still going on. These guns were being sold to people in high school all over Kenosha County.

All of the people caught in this case admitted to making and selling guns. These people were arrested:

17-year-old John Ehlert-Abbott

18-year-old George Shepherd

Five more boys aged 16

The Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office is investigating possible crimes such as getting stolen goods, selling dangerous weapons to children on purpose, having a dangerous weapon under the age of 18, and carrying a concealed weapon.
