A Yantis woman has pleaded guilty to federal firearms violations.
According to U.S. Attorney John M. Bales, 51-year-old Andrea Jaine Burns London pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to not keep required records.
London and Lucretia Beth Brown, 45, also of Yantis, were indicted on July 11, 2012, and charged with gun trafficking violations.  Federal agents executed search warrants at their home and business in November 2011.   A warrant was issued for their arrest, but it was soon discovered that the pair had left the United States for the Philippines in February 2012.  Assistance was requested from the International Investigations Branch and a lead was sent to the Diplomatic Security Service in Manila.  On Oct. 9, 2012, Philippine Immigration Agents arrested London and Brown in Cebu without incident.  Both subjects were transported to Manila to begin the deportation process.  On Nov. 8, 2012, London and Brown were escorted by Philippine Immigration Agents from Manila to Los Angeles where they were taken into custody by the Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force.
According to information presented in court, from January 2011 to July 2011, London and Brown transported guns from the inventory of Lake Fork Gunslinger & Outdoors in Emory, Texas, to gun shows in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Arkansas, and then sold the guns without properly recording the name, age, and place of residence of the buyers.  Brown pleaded guilty on Feb. 14, 2013, to conspiracy to fail to perform backgrounds checks and is awaiting sentencing.
London faces up to 10 years in federal prison at sentencing.  A sentencing date has not been set.
This case is being prosecuted as part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods Initiative. Project Safe Neighborhoods is aimed at reducing gun and gang violence, deterring illegal possession of guns, ammunition and body armor, and improving the safety of residents in the Eastern District of Texas. Participants in the initiative include community members and organizations as well as federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the U.S. Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Noble.
