The Gooding Police Department and the “federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives“ last year recovered more than $8,000 in stolen firearms at an Idaho truck stop, police said Sunday.

The year-long investigation resulted in “a July indictment of a Utah man who is a suspect in selling the stolen guns to an informant working with Gooding police, said Gooding“ Police Detective Sjuni Bunderson.

Gooding Police disclosed the investigation publicly through a news release Sunday. Over the past year, police have been involved with the various legal aspects, Bunderson said.

The man was indicted by a federal grand jury July 22 but has not been arrested, Bunderson said.

Bunderson declined to disclose the man’s name, and said the ATF hadn’t authorized it. He deferred comment to Salt Lake City-based ATF Agent Keith Rafaz. Rafaz could not be reached for comment Sunday. More From

The article further states that “when the truck arrived in Oregon, an inventory discovered 27 guns were missing, including the 13 that were sold to the Gooding Police informant. The other 14 have not been recovered.”
