'Fast and Furious Blurs the Line Between Cops and Crooks'

Posted By on Mon, Jan 7, 2013 at 3:01 PM

Narcos News' Bill Conroy's latest investigative report looks further into Fast and Furious, and in particular one gun traced to a Phoenix store used in a late November gun battle in Sinaloa.

You can read the entire piece on Narco News, but here's a snippet:

Two guns of interest were found in late November of last year near the scene of a gun battle in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The battle, waged between the Mexican military and alleged drug traffickers, left five people dead, including a Mexican solider and a beauty queen named Maria Susana Flores Gamez.

One of those guns can be traced back to a Phoenix gun store that sold multiple weapons to local, state and federal law enforcers who allegedly provided inaccurate information on firearms-transaction reports filed as part of those purchases, Narco News has learned. The ultimate fate of those guns is not known but the potential fallout for multiple law enforcers in the Phoenix area could be serious, possibly even criminal, should the matter be investigated thoroughly — though it is that potential alone that may assure no law enforcer or prosecutor is going to take on the task.
