Authorities say he bought the items from undercover police and an ATF agent. They had been investigating him because he was recruiting kids to steal items for his store. "In this particular case, what made this operation so heinous is the suspects involved in this were recruiting young men and young women, basically children, to steal from (other stores) and bring in the product," Cassell said. "That's unacceptable." (Source (Source
