A woman from Hazelton, Pennsylvania, has been charged with illegally purchasing firearms in order to transfer them to a prohibited possessor.

According to a Justice Department news release, 25-year-old Jazmine T. Wing knowingly made false statements when purchasing 6 firearms from Bob’s Sporting Goods in Hazleton, PA, and from Dave’s Gun Shop in Drums between Sept. 19, 2014 and April 14, 2015.

The purchased guns included: Glock 19 9mm; Glock 23 .40 caliber; Taurus PT745Pro .45 ACP; Extar EXP556 5.56mm;CAI/Romarm Micro Draco 7.62×39; and Ruger P91DC .40 ACP

Wing admitted in her subsequent plea agreement that she knew the guns would land in the hands of a person prohibited by law from possessing them. Her arraignment has not yet been scheduled.

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case as part of the Violent Crime Reduction Partnership, an initiative in the Middle District of Pennsylvania aimed to prevent the spread of violence.
