A 32-year-old Chicago man was indicted on federal gun charges last week, about three months after buying two firearms from an undercover agent, the Justice Department said Thursday.
Lazaro Salas, a known gang member, has been charged with dealing guns without a license and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested him in January. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
According to court documents, authorities set up the buy after they were tipped off by a confidential informant, who acted as a straw buyer providing Salas between 40 and 60 guns from September 2013 to November 2015. Salas would resell the guns and at least two of them were recovered by the Chicago Police Department from crime scenes involving members of other gangs.
