FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) – Federal and local authorities say they’ve arrested a man in Oklahoma on suspicion of shipping firearms to his fellow gang members in Southern California.
The Orange County Register reports Manuel “Flacco” Delatorre, Jr. could face charges including unlawfully transferring a firearm to an out-of-state resident. It wasn’t known on Wednesday if the 23-year-old has an attorney.
Guns and ammo recovered in Orange County, California were traced to Verden, Oklahoma. Police along with agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives arrested Delatorre there on Tuesday.
Court documents described Delatorre as a member of the Baker Street Gang in Fullerton, California, who relocated to Oklahoma.
He could face five years in prison if convicted.
