SAN DIEGO, CA -(Ammoland.com)- On October 13, 2021, the San Diego “Ghost Gun” Task Force raided a local business and the business owner’s home.
The law enforcement task force reported that they seized multiple Polymer80 kits, multiple unserialized “assault weapons,” 3D printers, “high” capacity magazines, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and $90,000 in cash. Now due to leaks from the investigation, AmmoLand News has found out the company’s name and what has been turned up in the investigation.
The company’s name is AGK Supply. The company marketed and sold unfinished frames and receivers, and other gun parts. A temporary employee purchased a legal pistol slide and a part kits from his San Diego-based employer. He used the lower parts to complete a previously purchased Polymer80 kit. He took the completed kit and allegedly offered to sell it to a man he met online. That man turned out to be an undercover cop with the San Diego “Ghost Gun” Task Force. The offer to sell deal was not done at AGK Supply’s location and was done in the dead of night when the retailer was not open.
The task force found out that the victim of the police sting worked for the online retailer of unfinished frames and receivers. San Diego’s “Ghost Gun” Task Force then went to a judge and requested that the court issue a search warrant for AGK Supply. The courts rarely turn down search warrants, and it was no different in this case.
The San Diego “Ghost Gun” Task Force raided the company’s location and seized all of AGK Supply’s inventory, computer systems, phones, and cash. At the same time, the law enforcement task force raided the owner’s home. The police officers serving the warrant seized more money, a 3D printer, magazines, cell phones, and other firearms at the house.
The local district attorney filed conspiracy charges against the business owner. Notwithstanding the man who was busted allegedly selling the completed firearm to an undercover officer, there is no evidence that the owner of AGK Supply knew the employee would use the lower parts kit and slide to make a complete pistol that he would later try and sell.
By his own admission, the temporary employee didn’t even purchase the 80% P80 kit from the AGK Supply, but none of that matters to the “Ghost Gun” Task Force.
Normal Capacity Magzine Seized: Any magazine holding more than ten rounds is at this moment in time, illegal in California, but there have been exceptions to the current law. Several years ago, there was something called Freedom Week. During that time a California judge issued an injunction against the ban on standard capacity magazines. Gun owners were allowed to keep any magazines obtained during that one week. There is no evidence that the company owner acquired the magazines outside freedom week.
According to sources familiar with the case that are not authorized to talk to the press, some of the so-called “assault weapons” seized were not completed rifles. Prosecutors claim some of the firearms were out of compliance with California’s complex law, other items were stripped lower receivers which law enforcement referred to as “assault lowers.”
Although the sources inside law enforcement didn’t claim that the shop owner was being targeted for running a business that sold 80% kits, there is a lot of circumstantial evidence that points to AGK Supply and the company’s owner being on the watch-list of the San Diego “Ghost Gun” Task Force.
AmmoLand News has decided not to name AGK Supply’s owner to protect his privacy. The man could not comment on the charges because of pending legal action against him but confirmed that his company was targeted in the questionable raids. This time no one was hurt during the police raids.
