Man Sentenced for Illegally Straw Purchasing 17 Firearms

Post by allingeneral »

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A Woodbridge man was sentenced today to one year and one day in prison for conspiring to illegally straw purchase 17 firearms.

According to court documents, Corey Randolph Harris, Jr., 27, conspired with an unnamed co-conspirator to knowingly make false statements with respect to the purchase of firearms. Between April 2019 and July 2019, Harris straw purchased 17 firearms in eight separate transactions, all from federal firearms licensees in the Eastern District of Virginia. In each transaction, Harris represented himself as the true buyer of the firearms when, in fact, he was purchasing them on behalf of the unnamed co-conspirator and selling them to the unnamed co-conspirator for a profit. The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C. recovered two of the firearms from individuals other than Harris and the unnamed co-conspirator.
