Connecticut – Three men were arrested for trafficking in guns stolen in Florida and transported to Connecticut. Eric Woodie, 30; Dominic Colon-Brown, 27; and Julian Judge, 22 were charged in connection with the gun trafficking scheme. Woodie has been in state custody since March after running from police and discarding a .40 caliber handgun and ‘large capacity’ magazine during the foot pursuit.
As alleged in court documents and statements made in court, in late February 2021, Woodie rented a car, which Judge and Colon-Brown used to drive to Florida to obtain stolen firearms and bring the firearms back to Connecticut. On March 8, 2021, law enforcement recovered a .40 caliber handgun and a high capacity magazine that Woodie discarded during a foot chase in New Britain. A subsequent search of a New Britain apartment where Woodie and Judge resided revealed three additional loaded firearms, two extended magazines, more than 100 rounds of ammunition and approximately 60 grams of cocaine. The serial number on one of the firearms found in the apartment matched the serial number of a firearm that had been stolen in Florida in February 2021.
It is further alleged that Woodie, Colon-Brown and Judge are captured in recorded conversations discussing the illegal acquisition and sale of firearms, and that Judge and Colon-Brown posted photos of themselves on social media in possession of firearms.
All of the suspects are charged with gun trafficking under Federal statutes: “conspiring to engage in the business of dealing in firearms without a license and to transport stolen firearms in interstate commerce, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years.” Their detention hearing is June 1, today. It is unclear whether any of the three were charged with the cocaine offense, but it’s likely that it will be added at today’s detention hearing, if not.
Woodie and Judge are from New Britain, Connecticut, and Colon-Brown is from Farmington, Connecticut.
