This morning, Fox News confirmed that three more weapons that were used in Operation Fast and Furious, the same failed operation that resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent, and United States Marine, Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jamie Zapata, were recovered at crime scenes in Mexico.
According to a report from the Department of Justice, “all three are described as WASR-10 .762-caliber Romanian rifles and all three were traced to a gun shop in Glendale, Arizona.”
The documents further state that two of the three guns were purchased by Uriel Patino, who is believed to have purchased 700 weapons with encouragement from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. The third was bought by Sean Steward, who was convicted on gun charges in 2012.
The Justice Department has acknowledged encouraging gun stores in the U.S. to sell weapons to purchasers who trafficked them to Mexican drug cartels. The Department said that the goal was to capture a major cartel leader.
