“The most important thing is there were two high-powered weapons in the wrong person’s hands, and we did everything we needed to get those back,” Aufiero said.
When asked about the recognition, Aufiero said the authorities “were just doing our job, and I’m glad everything worked out well.”
Keefe echoed similar sentiments, saying “Kevin had a great, big part of it, but it was also a team effort with the FBI, Massachusetts State Police, Lawrence police and Andover.”
“For Kevin himself, it was great to be recognized by his peers and the FBI itself,” Keefe said. “It was great for him to get recognized for a job well done.”
