Portage County man accused of giving away firearms training certificates without providing training

The Portage County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man accused of issuing training certificates for firearms training he was supposed to provide but never did. 

Anthony Drago, 47, was an NRA instructor. 

In Ohio, it is mandatory to undergo firearms training to obtain an Ohio Concealed Carry License. 

Drago allegedly gave out the licenses without training people. 

He is charged with four counts of tampering with records, four counts of falsification to obtain a CCW Permit, and four counts of forgery. 

Drago was arraigned in Portage County Common Pleas Court Monday morning and was released on a $20,000 bond.
