As reported by the
Phoenix Law Enforcement says they arrested 49 people on federal gun charges and drug crimes and could lead to state charges against 54 others.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office says “Operation 602 Exchange” resulted in the seizure of 223 weapons, including handguns, assault rifles, rifles and sawed-off shotguns, many of them stolen. Agents and officers also seized narcotics, including methamphetamine, crack and powder cocaine, prescription medications, marijuana and heroin.
The 49 were arrested after a nine-month undercover operation.”
As a former Assistant U.S Attorney, I have had experience in many cases like this. These are very serious charges and these people will need a very good attorney experienced in federal criminal charges.
