Badger Guns update: store helps police

Badger Guns in West Milwaukee (earlier posts: Badger Guns update 10/6/09) gives an assist to local police and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel doesn't bother to report about it. No they'd rather castigate the owners.

WEST MILWAUKEE - West Milwaukee Police confirm they arrested a suspect wanted on warrants after getting help from a controversial gun store.

Authorities had notified the store that the suspect, Carlos Flores, might come in.

Flores did come in and the store called police. West Milwaukee Police arrested Flores.

The store has been under fire since Milwaukee's Police Chief and Mayor called it out for selling guns that wind up in the hands of criminals. Police say a third of all guns used in violent crime in the city are traced to the store.
