Three Indicted In Worcester Weapons Theft
Three people including a former Army reservist have been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the theft of weapons from a U.S. Army Reserve Center.
Thirty-four-year-old James Morales, of Cambridge, is charged with conspiracy to possess stolen weapons, theft of government property and other offenses.
Prosecutors say Morales, a former Army reservist, stole six assault rifles and 10 handguns Nov. 14 from the Lincoln Stoddard Army Reserve Center in Worcester. Morales was out on bail for a child rape charge at the time.
He was arrested Nov. 18 on New York's Long Island.
Twenty-eight-year-old Tyrone James and 26-year-old Ashlee Bigsbee, both of Dorchester, face charges including possession of stolen weapons and making false statements to FBI agents.
Authorities say an investigation implicated James and Bigsbee.
It's unclear whether they have attorneys. (Associated Press)
