Aaron Hernandez legal troubles are continuing while he is behind bars with a new investigation that he is involved in a gun running ring.
The former New England Patriots player has been charged with the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd and five gun-related charges.
Now, according to Sports Illustrated, a subpoena that was served on Miami Dolphins player Mike Pouncey on October 27 was connected to Hernandez.
“The source indicated that police are focusing in on Hernandez’s potential involvement in interstate gun trafficking, which is being investigated by several agencies in multiple states – at least Massachusetts, New York and Florida,” the magazine wrote on Sunday.
“The extent of Pouncey’s potential involvement is undetermined, but police are focusing on multiple transactions that involve him and Hernandez.”
The report claims that he gun running ring may signal that the prosecution’s case against Hernandez isn’t as strong as they would like.
“The increased scrutiny on Hernandez’s gun activity could be an indication that the gun charges have taken an increased importance,” Sports Illustrated reported.
“Shortly after the first murder investigation began, the source said, signs that Hernandez was involved with a large-scale, multi-state gun running operation began to emerge.”
The gun allegedly used in Lloyd’s death has not yet been found.
