Columbus man offered to sell Glock switches to undercover agents, prosecutor says

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A U.S. District Court judge convicted a 23-year-old Columbus man Friday of dealing methamphetamine, and undercover agents reported he also offered to sell other products.

Jerrell E. Harrison, also known as “T” and “Chubbs,” was arrested last September and pleaded guilty in December to two counts of distributing at least 50 grams of methamphetamine, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Kenneth Parker. Following his conviction, Harrison will spend 10 years in federal prison.

Court documents showed Harrison sold hundreds of grams of methamphetamine to undercover agents in January and February 2023. In the recordings, Harrison discussed possessing more than 20 firearms with undercover agents and proposed to sell them.

Calling it the “best price in town,” he also offered to sell fentanyl to officers for $1,000 an ounce, Parker said. Harrison also announced they have Glock switches, which convert handguns from semi-automatic to fully automatic.
