Ted Ray Schlenker, age 48, a former Jefferson County police officer and officer with the Kentucky Department of Corrections was sentenced in U.S. District Court Tuesday by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell to 42 months in prison and 3 years’ supervised release.    Schlenker pleaded guilty on October 24, 2012 to charges that he knowingly deposited for mail at the United States Post Office in Bowling Green, a written threatening communication and a Jennings, Bryco Arms, 9mm handgun to the personal residence of a Special Agent for the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Schlenker was being investigated by ATF for firearms violations in connection with Kentucky Gun Runners, Inc., a company formerly owned by Schlenker,  In 2010, ATF conducted a compliance inspection on Kentucky Gun Runners, Inc., and discovered ten firearms not properly recorded and 49 firearms that were recorded, but missing from the store’s inventory.  Schlenker is suspected of falsifying ATF forms.  The ATF determined that Kentucky Gun Runners, Inc., had purchased the Jennings, Bryco Arms 9mm handgun, but did not officially record the purchase.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Joshua Judd and was investigated by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Bowling Green Police Department.
