Dealer Demands Feds Return More Than 1,500 Firearms Seized From Home, Business

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque firearms dealer is demanding that federal authorities return to him the 1,559 firearms that were seized from his business and home back in January.

Bob Adams hasn’t been charged with any crimes or violations of federal gun regulations, and his lawyers say the seizures went beyond what warrants authorized and that the warrants themselves were faulty.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the guns were seized as part of an investigation into allegations of illegal importation of firearms and of avoidance of taxes and custom duties.

Prosecutors say they still expect charges to be filed. They say the investigation has been hindered because many of the weapons lack required manufacturing or importation numbers.
