9-11 Memorial Security Guard Charged with Smuggling Guns From Florida

A security guard at the 9-11 Memorial and Museum in New York is facing charges for allegedly smuggling 50 guns from Orlando to New York on a bus.

29-year-old Maquan Moore was arrested last night, along with Morris Wilson, who allegedly brought at least 50 weapons to New York by bus from Florida on three separate trips.

Moore worked as a security guard at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. He was arrested Thursday night for selling military firearms to undercover detectives, police said.

Police are hunting for a third suspect who works at an Equinox gym in the West Village where the guns and rifles were stored.

Among the guns were several 9-millimeter handguns, a Kahr .380 pistol and an AM-15 semiautomatic rifle.

About 90-percent of these firearms come to New York from places like Georgia, Virginia, the Carolinas and Florida — where two of the suspected smugglers are from.

The majority of these guns are used for crimes, and in five instances, illegal guns have been used to kill five police officers in New York City since 2007.
