SC man who serial killer Todd Kohlhepp said sold him guns indicted

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A man who serial killer Todd Kohlhepp told authorities helped him get guns because Kohlhepp was a convicted felon has been indicted on federal weapons charges. 

Dustan Lawson signed paperwork saying the 12 guns and five silencers were for himself when he bought them from 2012 to 2016, but instead gave them to a man only identified as “T.K.,” according to allegations in a 36-count federal indictment filed last week.

Prosecutors and investigators have refused to say who “T.K.” is. But the convicted killer of seven likely made it easier on investigators, saying in a taped interview shortly after his arrest last November that “you may want to seriously talk to Dustan Lawson and give him a heads up.”

Grand jury indicts man accused of arming serial killer Todd Kohlhepp

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) –

The man accused of helping serial killer Todd Kohlhepp acquire some of the guns investigators found in his possession appeared in federal court Monday.

Dustan Lawson was indicted on 36 federal charges. The accusations include making false statements to the stores where he purchased the guns and knowingly transferring the guns to Kohlhepp, a felon who was not allowed to legally own a firearm.

Kohlhepp’s conviction for kidnapping a 14-year-old girl in Arizona in 1986 prevented him from legally owning a firearm.

Officials investigating how South Carolina serial killer Todd Kohlhepp amassed weapons

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Federal officials are investigating how a South Carolina serial killer managed to collect an arsenal of weapons decades after a kidnapping conviction made it illegal for him to buy guns.

Todd Kohlhepp was sentenced to life in prison last month after he pleaded guilty to killing seven people. He was arrested last fall after deputies rescued a missing woman from a shipping container on his rural Spartanburg County property.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are investigating his weapons trove.

Kohlhepp was convicted in 1987 of raping a 14-year-old neighbor at gunpoint.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says investigators think he acquired most of the weapons through straw purchases.

ATF spokesman Gerod King said Tuesday he could not comment on the investigation.
