EXCLUSIVE: A personal trainer who authorities said was headed to an undercover gun buy in Edgewater when detectives moved in was indicted by a Bergen County grand jury on charges of having six illegal guns in his car and apartment.
Dustin Robalino-Arcos, 35, an Ecuadoran national who lives in Lewisville, Texas, has been free on $100,00 bail since being released from the Bergen County Jail four days after his Aug. 10, 2012 arrest.
An undercover detective with the Bergen County Narcotic Task Force connected with Robalino-Arcos after learning that he was running guns in the New York/New Jersey area, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time.
After peddling black-market Sildenafil to the agent, Robalino-Arcos agreed to sell the six handguns for $7,200 during a meet in Edgewater, the prosecutor said.
Detectives watched him get into his car, then followed him briefly before quickly moving in, stopping the car in a safe place in Jersey City and getting Robalino-Arcos into custody, the prosecutor said.
The 10-count indictment charges him with selling a prescription drug to an undercover investigator, illegally possessing a large-caliber ammunition magazine and illegally both possessing, transporting and trying to sell:
- a 9mm Taurus model PT809;
- a Smith & Wesson SW40VD;
- a silver Taurus .357 Magnum;
- a SCCY model CPX-2;
- a Smith & Wesson Model SD40;
- a 9mm Taurus Millennium PTIII
