Man Who Sold Government Agents Their Own Gun Sentenced To 18 Months

05.03.13 12:22 PM

MILWAUKEE, (UPI) –* A Milwaukee man who sold federal undercover agents one of their own guns in a sting operation was sentenced to 18 months in prison, court documents said.

Marquise Jones, 19, pleaded guilty Thursday to having a stolen gun but insisted he had nothing to do with its theft. The weapon was taken from a vehicle owned by the U.S. government’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives the day before Jones tried to sell it.

The theft was one of a series of mistakes that marred an undercover sting operation in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood in 2012, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said Friday.

Federal agents set up a storefront, called Fearless Distributing, in an effort to arrest felons and drug dealers selling guns. Jones sold the stolen gun there, one of three weapons, including a machine gun, stolen from a government-owned vehicle parked at a doughnut shop near the storefront in September, the newspaper said.

The machine gun and a handgun are still missing, a Milwaukee police spokesman said Thursday.
