3 Connecticut men charged in gun-trafficking scheme linked to stolen Florida firearms
Three men have been charged in a scheme to traffic stolen guns from Florida to Connecticut. Eric Woodie, 30, and Julian Judge, 22, both of New Britain, Connecticut, as well as Dominic Colon-Brown, 27, of Farmington, Connecticut, are each charged with conspiring to engage in the business of dealing in firearms without a license and to transport stolen firearms in interstate commerce. Colon-Brown and Judge were arrested Thursday on criminal complaints and appeared via videoconference before U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas O. Farrish. Both are detained pending detention hearings scheduled for June 1.

Dixon was initially charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. On May 21, a federal judge ordered him held without bond pending his trial.
On June 1, a federal grand jury indicted Dixon on two counts each of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition and illegally possessing a machine gun.
