for Sale of Prohibited Weapon to Undercover Police

San Angelo, Tx - A 36-year-old San Angelo man is facing weapon charges after he sold a prohibited weapon to an undercover San Angelo Police Officer Tuesday evening.

Investigators made arrangements to meet the seller in a local Walmart parking lot and purchase the gun.  The suspect, later identified as Tony J. Reyes, unknowingly met with an undercover officer and he was taken into custody immediately following the transaction.  
Reyes was charged with Felon in Possession of Firearm and Possession of Prohibited Weapon.  He transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.
