4 indicted in Snohomish County gun trafficking conspiracy

Updated:

SEATTLE - Four members of a gun trafficking conspiracy were arrested Wednesday morning, accused of illegally selling more than 50 firearms to an undercover investigator, the U.S. Attorney General’s office said.

 The gun trafficking group was based in Snohomish County.  All four members were from Marysville and have been charged for previous crimes.

 “These defendants, convicted felons, were selling dozens of high powered firearms with no sales record and no concern about where these guns would end up,” said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan.  “Our region has seen too much heartache come out of the end of guns.  Law enforcement will continue to work together to stop the illegal flow of guns into our communities.”

 According to the indictment, the group sold guns to an undercover agent on multiple occasions between October 2012 and January 2013.
