ALBION, NY - An Orleans County gun shop manager is furious.
The manager says last week, state police threatened to raid his business if he didn't hand over customer purchase records.
"Plan A was apparently come in here guns blazing, SWAT team, the whole deal," said Joseph Palumbo, who co-owns the Albion Gun Shop.
Last week, Palumbo says he was faced with a decision in the store -- give up customer purchase records to the state police or be raided.
"It was kind of scary. I contacted the family attorney, she said cooperate, hand the records over," Palumbo said.
He tells 2 On Your Side that he came face-to-face with an officer from a state police drug task force, who also happened to be a customer at the store.
After that, Palumbo gave up records of about 170 customers.
