Friend of mass shooter arrested on firearms charges

Adelia Johnson who briefly dated Connor Betts who fatally gunned down people on Sunday in Dayton Ohio speaks to members of the media in Belmont Park in Dayton on Tuesday Aug. 6 2019

The agents, while talking to Mr. Kollie at his Kettering, Ohio, residence, smelled marijuana, saw drug paraphernalia and also spotted a pistol.

Ethan Kollie, 24, admitted to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that he was a regular user of marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms and that he lied on the form because "he knew that if he told the truth about his drug use, he would not be allowed to purchase a firearm, so he lied and answered "no" on the question asking about drug use.

Kollie faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted, Glassman said. Officers killed Betts within 30 seconds, just outside a crowded bar, and authorities have said hundreds more people may have died if Betts had gotten inside.

The statement indicates Kollie allegedly told agents he lied on ATF Form 4473 while purchasing firearms, specifically while answering question 11e that asks, "Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?"

Kollie admitted to purchasing body armor, the upper receiver of an AR-15, and a 100-round double drum magazine, all of which were used during the August 4 massacre.

The family said Nora had been to Asia and many European countries and had never wandered off or got lost. Police are still treating this as a missing persons case even though the family think she was abducted.

In the criminal complaint against Kollie, FBI agents said he had also admitted buying body armour, a part for an AR-15 rifle and a 100-round magazine for Betts and stored the items at his apartment.

The FBI said last week that Betts, had a history of violent obsessions and had mused about committing mass murder before his rampage in Dayton's historic downtown. "At that time, Betts took possession of it, the assembled weapon, and the body armor".

When agents returned with a search warrant, they said Kollie was carrying the.38 and what they believed was a small amount of marijuana.

He remains in federal custody, and will appear in court Wednesday to enter pleas to the counts.
