ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Atlanta have indicted seven men on federal gun dealing charges.

Prosecutors say the men, all from Griffin, were charged in two separate indictments on charges including illegal firearms dealing, possession of firearms by convicted felons, illegal possession of “sawed-off” shotguns and rifles, and distribution of narcotics.

Prosecutors say the charges stem from an undercover investigation by the Griffin Police Department and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Prosecutors say a group of three men possessed and sold seven different guns. Prosecutors say the other group of four men is accused of selling and possessing 22 guns, many of which had been reported stolen.

Prosecutors say all seven men are convicted felons and, therefore, prohibited form possessing guns.
