Woman charged with smuggling guns to Canada via VtThe Associated Press | October 27,2012BURLINGTON — Federal prosecutors say a Florida woman is facing charges she smuggled firearms to Canada by transferring them to a Canadian co-conspirator in a library that straddles the border between Vermont and Quebec.
Prosecutors say 46-year-old Annette Wexler, of Gibsonton, Fla., was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Burlington.
She’s charged with making false statements to firearms dealers in Florida, illegally exporting the guns to Canada and dealing firearms without a license.
Prosecutors say that between July 2010 and April 2011 Wexler bought guns from licensed dealers in Florida. She’s accused of transferring them to a Canadian co-conspirator at the Haskell Free Library, which sits on the border between Derby Line and Stanstead, Quebec.
