ATF agents searching for thousands of guns stolen from their facility before they could be destroyed


I would think, that since this was going on for several years, they would have have noticed sooner. !!

ATF agents searching for thousands of guns stolen from their facility before they could be destroyed


John Diedrich, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 5:00 a.m. CT June 13, 2019 | Updated 4:00 p.m. CT June 13, 2019




ATF agents across the country have been working to track down thousands of guns and firearms parts that had been seized by law enforcement and were supposed to be destroyed but were stolen first, according to sources familiar with the effort.

The agents are searching for some of their own retired service weapons as well as guns from other federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and DEA.

All of the weapons had been sent to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' National Firearms and Ammunition Destruction Branch in Martinsburg, West Virginia, to be shredded, according to court documents and congressional letters.

A longtime guard at the ATF facility has admitted to carting off thousands of firearms, gun parts and ammunition and selling them over several years............

3. I worked in a steel mill where the feds would bring thousands of guns and drugs to

destroy them. They would bring several truck loads and we would load the firearms and drugs into the scrap ladle with a
pay-loader. It was quite a project they would post armed guards at all the mill gates even on the railroad bridge. They were
accompanied buy about 6 black SUVs full of agents in black uniforms. Now under Trump they lose them.
