Federal Indictment Against ccused Illegal Gun Dealer
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A St. Paul man is accused of illegally selling firearms, including some that were used in area crimes.
Twenty-nine-year-old Eitan Benjamin Feldman faces one count of willfully dealing firearms without a license and nine counts of lying during a firearm purchase.
An indictment unsealed Thursday says that since January 2014, Feldman regularly bought and resold guns for profit. Last October, ATF agents warned him his behavior fit the definition of a firearms dealer and he was told to stop. The indictment says he sold guns to undercover ATF agents on two occasions, and didn't ask either for identification or determine whether they could legally own a gun.
Feldman is expected to appear in federal court Thursday. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney to comment on his behalf.
