ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Federal and state agents charged 25 people and seized more than 230 firearms in a yearlong undercover sting operation unveiled Wednesday by U.S. Attorney Ken Gonzales.
For the past year, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operated a thrift shop called "Jokerz Traderz" at 1309 San Mateo NE in Albuquerque.
