The Cleveland Division of the FBI Announce the Arrest of Ronald E. Grab

The Cleveland Division of the FBI—Toledo Resident Agency, and the United States Attorneys Office—Northern District of Ohio, announce the arrest of Ronald E. Grab, 73 years of age.

On Friday, September 11, 2020, a search warrant was executed at the residence of Ronald E. Grab in Delta, Ohio. Grab was taken into federal custody without incident upon its completion. 

Grab has been charged with possession of a machinegun and possession of a firearm which is not registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

A complaint is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
