Some Congressional Members Calling for Probe of Botched ATF Sting Operation in Milwaukee

Federal officials are calling for an investigation into ATF after a flawed sting operation in Milwaukee, the Associated Press reports.

The ATF raided a storefront operation in search of felons committing drug and gun offenses but never made a major arrest.

During the raid of Fearless Distributing, which sold designer clothing, drug paraphernalia, athletic shoes and jewelry, the ATF left behind a military-style machine gun and appears to be responsible for $35,000 in stolen merchandise from the store, the AP wrote.

The ATF shut down the store but left behind a document listing names, vehicles and phone numbers of undercover agents, the AP wrote.

That’s just the beginning of blunders the ATF made, according to the AP.
