Docs: Man accused of arming serial killer Todd Kohlhepp makes bo …

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) –

On Monday, the man accused of helping serial killer Todd Kohlhepp acquire some of his guns bonded out of the Anderson County jail.

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.

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.”
