HOOKSETT – William Guerrero, 21, of Brighton, Massachusetts was sentenced to 12 months in federal prison for conspiring to steal firearms from a New Hampshire gun store.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on January 23, 2022, Guerrero drove a stolen vehicle into the parking lot of Shooters Outpost, a Federal Firearm Licensee in Hooksett, New Hampshire.
Surveillance footage shows Guerrero and three other men attempting to get into the store by smashing a window by the rear door.
The previous day, using the same stolen vehicle, three of the four men attempted to gain access to three other Federal Firearm Licensees in New Hampshire.
Following his arrest, a search of Guerrero’s telephones revealed a conversation in which he and his co-conspirators discussed breaking into gun stores.
“Those who conspire to come to New Hampshire to commit serious crimes such as these involving firearms, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said U.S. Attorney Young. “Stopping the flow of stolen firearms into our communities remains a priority for this office.”
