MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three men were indicted after a gun range robbery.
The burglary happened on Aug. 3 at Shoot Point Blank.
FOX13 first reported that the suspects visited the store the day of the burglary and returned that night, wearing masks and carrying tools to get the guns.
One of them didn’t change clothes. He wore the same pants and sneakers during the smash and grab of 32 firearms which helped police identify him.
According to a press release from the U.S Department of Justice, On Sept. 10, a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Kedrick Monger, Martez Banks and Corey Groves for conspiracy and theft of firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer.
ATF investigated this case as part of Operation LeGend.
“The proliferation of stolen firearms on the streets of Memphis contributes to the increased frequency and severity of shooting incidents and violent crime in our neighborhoods,' said Michael Dunavant, U.S Attorney. "Under Operation LeGend, we are surging federal resources to assist local law enforcement, and we are committed in our resolve to reduce violent crime by aggressively prosecuting federal firearms offenses. This indictment does just that.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Rogers is prosecuting this case.
If found guilty, they could face 10 years in federal prison without parole.
