Two members of the British Army’s Coldstream Guards have been charged with firearms offenses in the United Kingdom, according to Scotland Yard.
Kirtland Gill and Rajon were issued their charges on Tuesday following a scheme to steal ammunition and sell it off- a particularly steep offense, given the relatively anti-gun nature of the United Kingdom.
Gill, who made headlines in 2020 when he became the unit’s first black sergeant major, is facing one count of conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition, and one count of possession of an illegal weapon.
Graham faces one count of conspiracy to sell or transfer ammunition and four counts of selling or transferring ammunition.
According to a report by the Metropolitan Police, the duo are scheduled to appear in court on July 1.
The operation was interrupted by the Flying Squad, a branch of the Serious and Organized Crime Command within London’s Metropolitan Police Service.
