Fake stash house robbery cases are an embarrassment to a civilized society.
Here’s what happens. An undercover ATF agent finds a guy and does some deals with him. He then tells the guy he knows of a stash house where there are a lot of drugs and guns. Probably money too. Maybe a unicorn. Whatever it takes to get the guy interested.
The guy gets some other guys involved. They get weapons and gear up for this robbery of someone they believe is a drug dealer.
