Denisa Manga,Julio Manga arrested international smuggling ring that was allegedly transporting handguns and semi-automatic weapons

A cross-border smuggling ring that was shipping firearms into Canada from Detroit has been broken, authorities said yesterday, resulting in seven arrests and the seizure of more than 30 weapons, including several fully automatic machine pistols.
All were handguns and most were believed to be destined for the Toronto area, said Inspector Steve Clegg of the Ontario Provincial Police's weapons enforcement unit, which led the Canadian end of the eight-month investigation.Smuggled in by couriers through Windsor, the guns were worth between $1,500 and $2,500 on the street, Insp. Clegg said.
"The demand for concealable firearms is out there. I can't specifically say who these guns were going to, but we're quite confident we've eliminated a smuggling ring. It was a network based in Detroit."Two Windsor siblings arrested last week are charged with multiple gun-related offences, as are five Detroit residents.
Canadian police seized 27 guns, ammunition magazines and 235 rounds of ammunition, while another 10 firearms believed to have been en route to Canada were intercepted in Detroit.Working with the Canada Border Services Agency, the Toronto Police Service, Windsor police and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the weapons unit was still trying to trace the origin of all the guns, some of which came from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, Wisconsin, Alabama, Oregon and Virginia.
