Former Police Officer Makes Illegal Gun Sale

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - A former Ocean City police officer and candidate for Worcester County Sheriff has been charged with illegally selling an AK-47.

Maryland State Police say David Catrino also provided an unidentified buyer with four loaded 30-round magazines for the weapon last month and paperwork was never filed.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis says the gun was sold in the parking lot of Sherwood Ford in Salisbury, where the 45-year-old West Ocean City resident was employed as a salesman. Lewis calls it "a very reckless act."

Catrino was charged this week with unlawful sale or transfer of a regulated firearm and four counts of assault weapons violations and was released on bond.

Catrino worked as an Ocean City police officer from 1994 to 2007. He ran unsuccessfully for sheriff in 2010.
