Indianapolis brothers indicted on federal firearms charges
Drove stolen vehicle into federally licensed gun shop to gain access and steal firearms
Indianapolis (STL.News) Acting United States Attorney John E. Childress announced today that two Indianapolis men were indicted for the theft of firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer. Twin brothers, Tayveon Majors, 18, Indianapolis and Jayveon Majors, 18, were indicted today by a federal grand jury for the theft of 10 firearms from 500 Guns, a gun store located in Speedway.
“With cooperation from the public, and the excellent work by the investigators at the Crime Gun Intelligence Center, several stolen firearms and the thieves who stole them were quickly taken off the streets of Indianapolis,” said Childress. “This case is a great example of citizens working together with law enforcement to make the community a safer place to live.”
According to a criminal complaint filed against the two men, early on the morning of January 21, 2021, Jayveon Majors drove his brother, Tayveon, to an Indianapolis car dealership, where Tayveon stole a vehicle. The brothers then drove separately to the 500 Guns store in Speedway, where Tayveon used the stolen vehicle to drive through the front of the building to gain access.
