Feds raid Eagle Pass gun shop

Federal agents raided a gun shop in Eagle Pass this morning and arrested two brothers who run it on charges they conspired with smugglers who bought firearms and ammunition for shipment to Mexico.

The raid by agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement — Homeland Security Investigations at Hesles Gun Shop also involved other area law enforcement agencies.

It was the first time in recent memory that the federal government in the San-Antonio-based Western District of Texas has charged the operators of a gun store. The district includes Eagle Pass.

“As I understand it, it's two brothers” who are charged, said Richard Durbin, head of the criminal division for the Western District of Texas.

He declined to release their names until the men appear in court, but said the charges include conspiracy and aiding and abetting the illegal export of firearms and ammunition.

“There was evidence that they were knowingly selling ammunition and firearms being taken to Mexico,” Durbin said.

The pair were to have their initial court hearing in federal court in Del Rio later today.

Not only that money was also being laundered by various businesses hesles owned. It must be real embarrassing for the teens that they were pulled from the schools and now they are relocating to another state.

Those guys followed Fed and State Laws when selling or buying firearms and ammo. It is a setup. the feds just want to take the heat off themselves for there blotched "Fast and Furious" programs that sent thousands of weapons to Mexico.

what money their bank accounts are probably frozen by now by the U.S. Government. Plus the only form of them producing any revenue was by means of the store and they just lost that. Its going to be tough.

Very nice conspiracy theory, but its NOT TRUE.
The feds had enough evidence to move in and make the arrests. Fast and Furious Ops was ONLY in Arizona and it was an ATF Op.
This Op was spearheaded by ICE, which has NOTHING to do with what the ATF was doing in Fast and Furious IN ARIZONA (which is not Texas)

Por favor no seas tan inutil y educate! Your boys Hesles are going to "Federal Pound You in the @ss Prison." And I hear one of them is already super gay too HAHA!
