Crime Specialist Karen Scullin reportingThe owner and an employee of a gun store in Lindon are facing 33 federal charges. A federal grand jury just issued the indictments this afternoon against Brent Larson and Bruce Leroy Walker.
These are very serious charges -- each man faces a possible 10 years in prison. In October, Eyewitness News first reported the ATF raided the Lindon gun store "The Shooting Range."
The accusation: employees weren't doing background checks, and that they were knowingly selling guns to convicted felons.
Two undercover ATF officers say they were able to puchase firearms with fake names and fake identifications at the store. Agents say the store did NOT do background checks on the two, and a short time later the store sold two pistols to a three-time convicted felon.
Today, indictments were handed down against Brent Larson and Bruce Leroy Walker. They're facing 33 counts ranging from knowingly selling guns to a convicted felon, selling firearms without a license and failing to do background checks.
