WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A former Hudson gun shop owner has been sentenced to three years of probation for selling dozens of firearms without a license.

The MetroWest Daily News (https://bit.ly/1vlQeJH ) reports that 68-year-old Raymond Carrado was also ordered by a federal judge Tuesday forfeit $15,000. Carrado pleaded guilty in May.

Prosecutors say Carrado, who owned K&R; Target Sports, continued to sell firearms after surrendering his license in September 2010.

Carrado sold 45 guns without a license over a six-month period in 2010 and 2011.

Carrado surrendered his license after a former employee stole about 100 guns from the store and sold them on his own. Some ended up in the hands of a member of the Hells Angels.

Carrado’s lawyer said his client was a law-abiding citizen who was “bamboozled” by the former employee.
