Gun Shop Robbery



Three people, including one from Winona, are charged with stealing about 75 firearms from a Millville gun shop in September and trying to sell them. 
 
A federal indictment unsealed this week charges 38-year-old Alex Boyd, 30-year-old Sasha Marie Erdner, both of Lanesboro, and 19-year-old Trinity James Wicka of Winona with conspiracy to possess and distribute stolen firearms and possession of stolen firearms. 
 
Boyd faces another count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
 
James Modzelewski is special agent in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He says the robbery of Millville Rod and Gun Shop was one of the largest gun shop burglaries in Minnesota in recent years. Many of the guns are still missing. 
 
The robbery occurred last September. Several others have been arrested in the case.
