DUPAGE COUNTY, Ill. (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A Villa Park man has been accused of illegally selling guns to undercover police officers on four separate occasions.

Bruce Berrier, 21, was charged with one felony count of gunrunning, one count of possession of a gun by a street gang member and one count of unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, according to a statement from the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office.

On four separate occasions between Sept. 28 and Nov. 24, it is alleged Berrier sold four guns, ammunition and magazines, including one extended magazine, to undercover police officers, according to the state’s attorney’s office. The sales allegedly took place in Roselle and Hanover Park.
