They were, according to another article but was a warrant really necessary considering the couple had already notified authorities?As a retired LEO local ATF would be notified ASAP!
Wow - what a highly intelligent statement from a retired Police Captain and former marine... My point being I highly doubt it was intentional...It's incredible," said retired Houston police captain and former Marine Greg Fremin. "It's unbelievable to think weapons of that grade, military-grade weapons, would be shipped in containers would be shipped across state lines and somebody have access to that. It's pretty shocking,"
AND especially considering this part:
If there were a butt load of containers it's possible they were deivered on pallet/s and less likely to be noticed. You would think somewhere along the line though someone would have had to stack n wrap them one by one and would have noticed, hu.
Wow, I thought by looking at one of the pictures it was only six. So the plastic tub that should have weighed 10-15 lbs weighed closer to a hundred and nobody noticedAND especially considering this part:
Over the weekend, a friend helped the couple stack and store the cases. As a thank you, they gave one of the cases to the friend.
When that friend opened the case, he realized it was not empty. Inside were 12 fully-automatic M-16s,
Warrant? Probably in order to inventory and inspect all the boxes in the shipping documents. Somebody at a Military facility has some explaining to do! Unfortunately, thousands of weapons and ordinance go missing every year Just look at Brandon's record!They were, according to another article but was a warrant really necessary considering the couple had already notified authorities?
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) executed a search warrant in a Richmond-area storage facility on Monday afternoon. However, that only came after the couple voluntarily notified authorities of their highly-unusual find.
And, it's rather interesting the one they gave him 'happened' to have the guns in it.As a thank you, they gave one of the cases to the friend.
