WESTBOROUGH – A Marlborough man has been arrested after he allegedly trafficked firearms in Westborough.

Andriel Guillen-Perez, 23, has been charged with trafficking firearms, sell/transfer large capacity firearm and possession of a firearm without a FID card.

According to the statement of facts, Guillen-Perez made three illegal firearm sales with a confidential informant since Oct. 18.

Guillen-Perez reportedly lived in Westborough when the transactions were made.

The informant and Guillen-Perez allegedly met on Oct. 18 at the Westborough Shopping Center for the sale of a Taurus GX4 9mm pistol for $1,500 along with 11 rounds of ammunition.

A week later on Oct 25, they met again, and Guillen-Perez sold a Polymer 9mm pistol for $1,300, the statement of facts read. On Nov. 9, the pair met and the informant was sold a Polymer 9mm pistol and an extended large capacity 31-round magazine for $1,300.

Police wrote that Guillen-Perez does not have a license to carry, firearms identification card or a license to sell firearms in the state.

“Based on the above facts, I believe that there is a high likelihood that Andriel is still continuing his business,” police wrote in the statement of facts.

According to a press release from Westborough police, members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; Westborough Police Detective Bureau; and Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section arrested Guillen-Perez in Marlborough on Dec. 16.

He was arraigned in Westborough District Court on Dec. 16 where he entered a plea of not guilty.

His bail was set at $50,000 surety bond or $5,000 cash. However, a petition has been filed to review his bail has been filed.

Guillen-Perez will return to court on Jan. 13 for a probable cause hearing.
