LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico gun store owner accused of selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels testified Monday that he never took seriously comments from a customer-turned-informant who talked about taking guns and ammunition south of the border.

Rick Reese, owner of New Deal Shooting Sports in Deming, says the man was boisterous and bragging all the time, so he didn’t believe anything he said.

Reese, his wife, Terri, and their sons, Ryin and Remington, are on trial on charges that they sold assault rifles and ammunition to the informant and undercover federal agents.
