VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia – A man is suspected of selling trigger activators, also known as mass stocks, according to a search warrant filed in Circuit Court.

Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office

Jerome Harris

Jerome Harris was arrested by police on September 5 and arrested for possession of more than a pound of marijuana and possession of a gun containing more than a pound of marijuana, according to the search warrant.

Investigators recovered his cell phone as evidence and examined social media accounts and text messages, where investigators say he spoke of selling the trigger activators to people.

Harris spoke with someone about selling “black switches” for $ 800, according to the search warrant. “Harris says he will allow people to shoot them before they buy. Harris says they only fit on the Glocks,” the search warrant reads.

Court records show Harris is in jail without bail. He refused to speak to News 3 from prison.

Bump stocks are illegal in Virginia, following the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas, where a gunman shot more than 400 people and killed 60.

Boss stocks allow a semi-automatic pistol to fire more than one bullet with the pull of a trigger.
