WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Waterloo man was arrested Thursday night after a three-week investigation uncovered he was trying to sell a gun.

Officers from the Violent Crimes Apprehension Team were conducting an investigation at Ali's West Side Liquor at 919 W. 5th Street when they came into contact with Deshaun Cortez Harmon, 30.

Officers say they saw Harmon conceal a .32 caliber revolver inside a beer cooler when officers were approaching him.  They found the gun shortly after Harmon left the store.  They say Harmon had made arrangements to sell the gun to someone else.

Harmon was arrested on warrants for possession of a firearm as a felon and carrying weapons.
