Aiding gun sale to felon admitted

A 23-year-old Fort Wayne woman pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court this week to knowingly selling a firearm to a convicted felon.

Indicted in August along with Trevor Rodriguez, Hayley VanDurmen was accused of aiding in the sale of guns to someone they knew had a felony conviction.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Rodriguez is scheduled to plead guilty next week, according to court documents.

According to court documents, the ATF began investigating Rodriguez in April 2013 after agents received information he offered to sell an Uzi.

Over the next few months, while agents watched, they saw Rodriguez sell a .45-caliber handgun along with a high-capacity magazine; a MAK-90, which is similar to an AK-47, along with another high-capacity magazine; a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun, a Hawk 12-gauge shotgun; and a .357 revolver.

Rodriguez also sold marijuana to the same person on a number of occasions, court records said.
