Baldonado is accused of selling three of them before New Mexico State Police found one in his car during a traffic stop. Investigators say Baldonado had reason to believe at least one of his buyers was a convicted felon. A total of 16 guns actually went missing from the store but when questioned about the other 12, Baldonado told investigators he wondered which other employee might have taken them.
