NYPD busts illegal weapons ring in Queens
Cops busted a major gun trafficking ring in Queens on Thursday following a three-year undercover investigation.
The Queens district attorney indicted four suspects, who range in age from 26 to 50, on various gun possession charges and illegal gun sales charges.
The district attorney's office said undercover officers dealt with the suspects for three years and were able to purchase 20 handguns and semiautomatic weapons for as much as $1,100 a piece.
A fifth suspect was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance for allegedly selling drugs to the officers.
