3 men arrested for falsifying CHL training certificates

For those that haven’t seen this story, 3 men in the Columbus area have been arrested and 600 concealed carry licenses invalidated due to falsification of training. Let this serve as a reminder to everyone to be sure you are meeting all of the legal requirements when conducting concealed carry training!



Three people are facing charges, accused of helping falsify permits to carry a concealed weapon.

According to Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott, an undercover investigation began in April 2012 into the issuance of fraudulent training certificates to obtain a CCW permit.

The sheriff’s office said that through the investigation, it was determined that three people were allegedly involved in the permit scheme.

It is alleged that 62-year-old John Michael Marshall, a certified firearm instructor, was selling his signed training certificates to 41-year-old Adam Chaykin and 48-year-old Ken Fouch, who were allegedly conducting illegal training classes, which fell far short from the required training.

Investigators said that in some cases, no training occurred.
