WNBC reports a FedEx employee and another man are charged with violating federal firearms statutes for stealing guns from a FedEx facility and selling them out of a car. Cargo handler Patrick Dolan took 146 guns--shipped from Argentina to a NJ importer--from a conveyor belt and enlisted John Sozomenou to help him. Their plan unraveled when, per the Star-Ledger, "Jersey City residents complained to police in May that two white males were selling handguns at three different public housing complexes," so the feds set up a sting. Go concerned citizens! FedEx says Dolan was fired after his arrest in May ("It appears to be an isolated issue. We have very tight security procedures in place.") and the pair face up to 10 years in prison.
