Businessmen arrested on federal charges

June 2, 2004

Moultrie-- The men are accused of making false gun licenses in Georgia and sending those guns to states with tougher gun laws.

The Moultrie men went before a federal judge in Albany Wednesday afternoon. Marvin H. King is accused of illegally selling guns out of his store, King's Jewelry Midtown Pawnbrokers in downtown Moultrie.

Charles Motes III, is accused of the same crime. He owns Motes Grocery on Third Avenue in Moultrie. They both plead not guilty to conspiracy to falsify statements on firearms records.

"These guns could go into the hands of convicted felons or people who don't need to be possessing these guns," said Moultrie Police Sgt. Roger Lindsay.

The men are out on bond. Investigators do not know how many guns were sold illegally. 

A third man, Thomas Frazier, could also be involved in the gun ring. Authorities have him in custody in New York.
