Former CBP Supervisor Faces Sentencing In Case Tied To Arizona

February 08, 2018

A former supervisor for U.S. Customs and Border Protection faces sentencing in April for buying guns in Arizona and illegally taking them to California.

Martin Rene Duran was recently found guilty of seven counts of illegal transportation of firearms and one count of possession of an unregistered firearm.

While Duran was stationed near San Diego, he used an Arizona driver’s license to buy guns in Prescott and Yuma, according to court documents. Duran then took them home to California.

Duran started buying the guns in 2011, authorities say.

Duran was suspended indefinitely, without pay, in November 2015.

The 48-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced on April 30.
