Police: 3 arrested in ATF raid part of robbery ring

Posted: Updated:

According to court documents, the suspects involved in Monday's undercover sting operation in Soundview, that ended with gunfire, are part of a ring of would-be robbers planning to steal thousands of dollars worth of drugs.

The operation started in the middle of last month after someone contacted an undercover agent, asking him to join the drug heist.

Agents shot two of the suspects after they charged their car toward ATF agents. The suspects face numerous charges.
