 Officers Seized Six Firearms, Illegal Drugs, Nearly $180,000 in Cash

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Kansas City, Missouri, man who called 911 to aid his mother was charged in federal court today after police officers responded to their residence and found evidence of drug trafficking and illegal firearms.

Michael Cummings II, 39, was charged with possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and with possessing firearms in furtherance of drug trafficking in a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo. Cummings remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing on June 14.

According to an affidavit filed in support of today’s federal criminal complaint, police officers were called to Cummings’s residence on Monday night, June 7, when Cummings called 911 for emergency medical assistance for his mother. Emergency personnel attempted lifesaving measures on Cummings’s mother but she was unresponsive, and pronounced dead at approximately 12:04 a.m. on Tuesday, June 8.

Officers saw a loaded Heckler & Koch .40-caliber handgun on the dining room table, next to a pile of cash, and an SKS-style assault rifle with a magazine leaning against the wall of a stairwell. Officers arrested Cummings, who is a convicted felon, for illegally possessing the firearms.

Officers then obtained a warrant and searched the residence. In addition to the two firearms, officers also seized $618 found on the table and under the couch cushion.

In one bedroom, officers found a Pioneer Arms 7.62 x 39mm AKM-47-style pistol in the closet, a baggie that contained .24 grams of a fentanyl/heroin compound, baggies that contained a total of 351.37 grams of methamphetamine, two plastic baggies that contained a total of 28.1 grams of crack cocaine, a baggie that contained marijuana, and approximately $3,512 in cash.

In another bedroom, officers found a Ruger .22-caliber pistol on a shelf.

 In another bedroom, officers found a Smith and Wesson AR-15 style assault rifle in the closet and a safe that contained $175,100 in cash and a Ruger revolver that had previously been reported as stolen.

The charges contained in this complaint are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Trey Alford. It was investigated by the FBI and the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department.
