GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal agents said they used a “buy/bust” operation to arrest a felon who’s been selling guns and offering his buyers a sample of crystal meth.

Court documents say 34-year-old Russell Clack of Bay St. Louis was arrested on April 19 following a brief pursuit.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1WpsznY) Clack is held for a detention hearing set for May 12 in U.S. District Court.

Authorities say Clack was suspected of distributing crystal meth in Bay St. Louis before the investigation began. He had been convicted of manufacturing meth on Oct. 11, 2011.

Federal agents said an undercover agent went to Clack’s Sycamore Street home and Clack sold the agent two .38-caliber handguns for $400.
