The employee that sold the ammunition investigators say was used in recent murders allegedly committed by Nikko Jenkins murders talked to Channel 6 News Thursday. Gage Joy said he remembers Christine Bordeaux purchasing the ammunition as she talked to someone on her cell phone, who told her what kind to buy.
Court affidavits retrieved by Channel 6 explain Bordeauz bought two packs of five 12 gage classic magnum shot gun slugs. Employees said they are normally meant for hunting. The slugs are significantly larger than a normal bullet, and employees say they’re not a commonly purchased item.
President of Canfield, Scott Marble, said “When you get into a scenario where something you sell is used in a crime or something like that you have to go through the questions of what that means and how you are connected in the chain of events.”
There is no background check needed to buy ammunition in Nebraska. A check is only done when purchasing the actual gun - which Canfield doesn't sell. The U.S. Attorney’s office told Channel 6 it is legal for a felon to purchase ammunition, however under federal law a felon cannot be in possession of ammunition.
Bordeaux is being charged with a felon in possession of ammunition. She is set to appear in federal court Monday. She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
