Ocean County senior citizen used home as gun store, police say
BERKELEY TOWNSHIP — A 75-year-old man was charged with selling guns out of his home in an Ocean County senior community.
18 firearms, including handguns, rifles and shotguns, plus a large amount of ammunition and cash were seized from the Eton Road home of John Figlar on Friday, according to Berkeley Police.
Police said they were acting on a tip that Figlar was selling the weapons without the required permits and were considered street level sales.
Figlar was charged with the unlawful sale of a firearm and unlawful sale of ammunition. He was released on a summons under the recently-enacted bail reform guidelines. Berkeley Police said they expect more charges and arrests as the evidence is processed.
