Sentences have been handed down against two Starr County men who got caught selling illegal Glock switches. Jesse James Garcia and Jorge Gonzalez were nabbed in a federal investigation and eventually pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful possession of a machine gun.

During the investigation, an undercover ATF agent purchased from Garcia a total of 11 Glock switches – illegal devices that turn firearms into fully automatic machine guns.

The investigation led to Gonzalez and a search of his home, where agents turned up another Glock conversion device. Wednesday, a McAllen federal judge sentenced Garcia to a year and a day in prison, and sentenced Gonzalez to time already served which amounted to just over a year.
