CT man accused of trying to sell ‘ghost gun’

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — One man accused of trying to sell a newly-outlawed “ghost gun” is scheduled to appear in a Hartford courtroom on Friday.

Hartford police said 37-year-old Juan Rosado-Aponte was not only trying to sell a firearm he did not have a permit for, but the weapon also didn’t have a serial number — a term referred to as a “ghost gun.”
