|A 'Mr Big' operation was crucial to a police investigation into two St. John's shootings. Christopher Shaw, 34, was sentenced at Supreme Court in St. John's, Tuesday, to three-and-a-half years in prison for weapons offences. Jason Marsh, 38, was charged with attempted murder, assault, and aggravated assault.|
Two undercover officers from Ontario were placed in cells at the St. John's lockup. One of them was put in a cell with Marsh, who had been arrested for breaching a court order. Marsh gave the officers Shaw's phone number. They got him involved in several fake cargo theft schemes. Cops asked Shaw to get them a gun. Shaw, thinking he was dealing with the Hell's Angels, got them a .347 magnum handgun and 40 rounds of ammunition.
