Minnesota Man Convicted of Exporting Guns to Liberia
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A federal jury has convicted a Minnesota man of exporting guns to West Africa.
Thirty-eight-year-old McHarding Galimah, of Coon Rapids, was convicted in federal court in Minneapolis Thursday of one count of smuggling guns to Liberia.
Galimah bought 12 guns from a licensed dealer in the U.S. and exported them to Liberia. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Galimah then traveled to his native country and sold the guns.
A sentencing date has not been set.
