Illegal Gunnrunning Indictments Continue
09/23/2010

A federal grand jury has indicted two men

in an illegal gunrunning case involving a former Oklahoma narcotics

agent.

Lewisville, Texas, resident Gregorio Morales-Martinez and Jorge

Blanco of Stillwater were charged Wednesday with conspiracy to

illegally purchase 43 firearms in Oklahoma and transfer them to

Texas. Officials say some were then smuggled into Mexico.

Prosecutors alleged that Morales-Martinez paid a co-conspirator

to buy firearms, and the co-conspirator, identified as F.J.R.,

recruited other straw buyers, including Blanco. Authorities alleged

the straw buyers falsely stated on a federal form that they were

the "actual buyers of the firearms."

Morales-Martinez's attorney, Robert Robles, declined comment

Wednesday.

Ex-Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs agent,

and former Goodwell officer,Francisco Javier Reyes is accused

of using a false name to acquire guns and selling them to an unlicensed dealer.
