Gloucester County Man Admits Trafficking, Unlawfully Possessing Firearms


A Gloucester County man with five prior felony convictions today admitted to unlawfully possessing and conspiring to sell multiple firearms, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.

According to U.S. Attorney Sellinger, Dylan Ianncelli, 28, of Pitman, pleaded guilty to an information charging him with conspiring to make false statements in obtaining firearms and to illegally engage in the business of dealing in firearms, as well as possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Ianncelli and his conspirator, Jessy Hill, agreed to purchase firearms in Georgia and transport them for resale in New Jersey. 

On August 12, 2021, Hill purchased 11 firearms from a licensed dealer in Georgia. Hill falsely indicated during the purchase that she was the actual buyer/transferee of the firearms even though she was purchasing the firearms for others. 

Ianncelli and Hill drove a car containing the firearms from Georgia to Mantua, where the car was stopped by law enforcement officers the following morning. 

Officers recovered from the car the 11 firearms purchased by Hill the prior day, as well as ammunition and a 12th firearm with a defaced serial number that Hill purchased a week earlier.

Hill is charged by complaint with the same conspiracy. The charges and allegations contained in the complaint are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
