ST. LOUIS – Three pawnshop workers in Overland are facing federal firearms charges.
Federal investigators spent hours raiding Piazza Jewelry and Pawn back in December 2019. They filled a U-Haul truck with collected evidence.
Thirty-one-year-old Carlos Jones, 36-year-old Robert Thornton, and 44-year-old Steve Johnson have been charged with unlawful transfer of firearms to a convicted felon and making false statements on records.
According to ATF agents, a large number of firearms sold by the pawnshop were used in violent crimes in the St. Louis area.
