By The Associated Press


WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) _ A third person charged in connection with the theft of 16 guns from a Massachusetts Army Reserve center last month is scheduled to appear in court.

According to federal documents, Tyrone James, of Boston, is expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Worcester on Monday on charges of being a felon in possession of guns and lying to investigators.

Authorities allege James helped sell some of the weapons reported missing from the Lincoln W. Stoddard U.S. Army Reserve Center on Nov. 16. Six assault rifles and 10 handguns were stolen. Only 10 have been recovered. It could not immediately be determined who is representing James.

The weapons were allegedly stolen by James Morales, a former Army reservist. He is being held without bail. His lawyer has not commented.
