Connecticut Shop Where Nancy Lanza Bought 1 Of Her Guns Raided By Feds


newyork.cbslocal.com

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — CBS 2 has learned federal agents have raided an eastern Connecticut gun shop connected to the Newtown elementary school massacre.

Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, assisted by police, raided Riverview Sales at 4 Prospect Hill Road in East Windsor on Thursday evening. The store was where at least one of the guns used by Adam Lanza during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy was purchased, reported Len Besthoff of CBS 2 sister station WFSB in Hartford

So now they raid the gun shop to get evidence of what? Was it a illegal gun sale? Is the owner making illegal sales. He was just quoted in the news talking about how he sold them the gun that was probably used to kill the little children. But it seems he has also been running into problems with people trying to steal guns from his shop. Mentally ill people trying to steal guns from his shop? Could it be he just got caught trying to sneak a deal with a mentally ill person?

Police: Man Stole Weapons from East Windsor Gun Shop Because He Was Being "Teased" at Work
Jordan Marsh, 26, of South Windsor has mental health issues, according to one family member.
The weekend arrest of a mentally ill man who had been stockpiling weapons has some believing that another potential tragedy akin to the one in Newtown was averted.


Jordan Marsh, 26, whose most recent address was 485 King St. in South Windsor, is facing a litany of charges after allegedly attempting to steal a long rifle from an East Windsor gun store last Saturday.

Marsh, who until recently lived with his father and stepmother, had previously received a two-year suspended sentence after it was discovered in June 2011 that he had stolen 12 firearms from the same gun store, Riverview Sales



So he stole 12 guns from the same gun store? He did not steal them all at once but at separate times. Now I would have to say I doubt he was able to do this over and over.

Hmmmm, something to keep an eye on for sure. No reason for a raid if nothing hinky was going on, other than to try to make it look like "they are doing something" for the masses of zombies.

But it gets better.



IIn 2007, Riverview Sales owner David E. Laguercia notified the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives that 33 guns were missing from his store, according to a Hartford Courant story. Of those 33 guns, 28 were recovered when police searched the home of Brian H. McClelland, who was a frequent customer of the store and helped out on occasion, the Courant reported.

Carl said that the store’s owners were not aware that the weapons had been taken until they told by police.


You don't know 33 guns are missing in your store? I think he had to be making back room deals with people who could not pass the screening. I think he kept dodging the charges by letting others take the fall for his black market deals.

Woah, what the hell?! How does one steal not one gun, but over twenty guns? Something isn't adding up at all...... Either this place had lax security, and guns stolen are covered by some kind of insurance or..... I don't know what the other choice can be. Being sold under the table then reported stolen?

That is almost 50 guns and there is still a third case that is involved with the investigation. I am not seeing the third case yet. I say it is black market gun sales and when they showed up on his door step from tracing the guns he just said I did not know they were missing although he sold them under the table.

I don't see how that would be possible.
I don't know any gun stores around here where one gun wouldn't be noticed missing at the end of the day, let alone this number.

Something is fishy for sure. Even if say they were "cheap guns", that is a whole lot of lost money for a store to not know about......

A 50 caliber sniper rifle.
That is not some thing you can just run out the door with or hide under your shirt.

Wow this is quite interesting. I bet he was complicit in the thefts somehow, ya`'ll are right that doesn't seem possible.

I would have a hard time believeing a gun shop owner wouldn't notice 5 guns missing, but 33?

Even if they were cheap guns you're still talking about thousands of dollars.

Definantly seems like this shop was selling guns "under the table".

One incident, 33 guns "missing"....the store dosent know they are missing until the police tell them....

Another incident, 12 guns "missing"

How on earth could you not notice you have a ton of missing guns in your store? Does the store not do inventory or even keep track of their own guns in the store?

How many gun sales do you need to make, so that that many missing isn't even an impact? It's got to be a lot to make 33 seem insignificant. I don't see how a store can stay in business let alone not notice that much inventory just poof, gone. I really just can't wrap my head around how they were able to keep the license to sell guns.

Sounds like they need to get Eric Holder on the case. He knows a little about black market guns. This gets more bizarre every day.

People walking in the door of a gun shop need to be id by computer data base
to photo scan data base. If not on, walk out the door.

As for theft in store must be dealt with but also when store is locked up.
I would like to be on the panel specking out the design and operation of shops.
Locks on everything.

Even armories have theft and break ins.

regardless of the gun thefts, the reason the feds raided was to get the yellow sheets and all other purchase information and receipts on the supposed used guns, and to make sure they had every copy
