Johnny Lawrence caught with stolen gun after lying to police about being a felon

67-year-old Johnny Lawrence believed a group of men were trying to break into his Tanglewood Drive residence late July 9th. Then, he alerted the authorities, telling them he might have to shoot the alleged intruders. Officers arrived, cleared his home, and observed that Lawrence had several handguns on his bed and dresser. Lawrence then told police that he was a felon. After officers checked this, they discovered that one of the handguns had been stolen. Officers also learned that Lawrence was not a felon before he then claimed to own the firearms. Lawrence was then taken into custody for theft of a firearm.
