    'No Guns' Founder Arrested for Selling Firearms

    DOWNEY - The founder of an anti-gang group called No Guns was arrested for allegedly selling firearms to federal undercover agents.

    Hector ``Big Weasel'' Marroquin, 51, was arrested Thursday at his Downey home on charges of selling an assault rifle, a machine gun, two pistols and two silencers, said Susan Raichel, a spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

    Sylvia Arrellano, 25, was arrested as a result of the same investigation at a Cudahy home and faces the same charges, Raichel said.

    The arrests came after a nine-month investigation into weapons sales by the 18th Street gang that once counted Marroquin as a member.

    Federal agents who raided Marroquin's junkyard in South Gate and his Marroking Seafood and Bar in Cudahy found gang photographs and writings, Raichel said.

    In 1996, Marroquin founded No Guns to work against gang and gun violence in inner-city communities and the group received $1.5 million in Los Angeles anti-gang funds. Marroquin claimed he helped more than 60 gang members find jobs in labor unions.

    The city contract was canceled last year after it was learned No Guns hired Marroquin relatives, including his son, gang member son Hector ``Little Weasel'' Marroquin, who was arrested last year for a home invasion robbery.
