The arrest of a Phoenix gun shop owner broke up a suspected firearms trafficking operation that supplied violent Mexican drug cartels, authorities said.

Agents raided X Caliber Guns and arrested George Iknadosian, 46, after undercover agents bought guns at the store indicating they were to be trafficked to Mexico, said Carlos Baixauli, a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
