Sacramento man accused of trafficking in firearms

A Sacramento man with previous felony convictions has been accused by a federal grand jury of trafficking in firearms.

Jurors on Wednesday returned a six count indictment against Gregory Andrew Harris, 31, charging him with conspiracy to deal in firearms without a license, dealing in firearms without a license and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Court documents indicate that Harris met with a cooperating witness on separate occasions in July 2015, selling and offering to sell him a variety of firearms, including an Intratec TEC-DC9 9mm pistol, a semi-automatic pistol. Harris cannot lawfully posses firearms because of his previous convictions for felony offenses, authorities said.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Sacramento Police Department and the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force.
