The Fed's Undercover "Store" on Metropolitan takes 300 guns off Southwest Atlanta streets
Dozens of arrests and 300 guns taken off the streets.
Atlanta Police, with the assistance of Undercover agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives held a press conference on Wednesday to showcase over 300 guns that they have confiscated from an undercover operation in Southwest Atlanta.
Federal agents ran a fake store for almost a year called Metro Mobile Safes, located on Metropolitan Pkwy. At this store they put out the word that they were paying cash for guns...soon criminals from all walks started walking in to their hidden-camera laden facility and sold weapons.
According to WSB reports, 45 of the purchased guns were stolen and 1 gun was even connected to a murder case.
