Former Boston Police Officer Convicted of illegally Purchasing Pistols for Acquaintances

Former Boston police officer convicted of illegally purchasing pistols for acquaintances

A former Boston police officer was convicted Monday of illegally purchasing two guns for acquaintances, federal prosecutors said.

Karani also falsely stated during one purchase that the gun was not for resale. Straw purchases interfere […]
