Fed Sting Involving Sneakers and Guns Nabs 60

 By Danny Fenster

There’s a sneaker and jersey store in Mansfield, Ohio that was dealing with much more than sneakers and jerseys. In fact, the feds were running the store and buying illegal guns and drugs from bad guys as part of a year-long sting operation that netted 60 arrests, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

The ATF worked with the office of U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Richland County Sheriff’s and prosecutor’s offices on the case, the paper reported.

“I have warned that the availability of guns was a serious issue for any urban center. It’s an issue that is playing out in our neighborhoods everyday,” said Cleveland mayor Frank Jackson.
