Another case of interest.
This scumbag made a fake firearm’s license.
Then purchased a firearm with it.
But shooters were on to him and had contacted Police.
He was later sentenced and found guilty of subverting the system with this document AND possession of illegal firearms.
He was out by the time that the shooter involved asked Police for a progress report on the case.
The Kiwi Gun Blog have confirmed the details with a detective involved in the case.
Our man Josh was already known to Police as a criminal but the detective was unsure if the offender had prior convictions for gun crime.
His capture was delayed due to the scumbag simply ignoring probation meetings.
So Police then intended to wait to collect him in court.
Where he was due to appear on a previous offence.
