WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Two of three people charged in connection with the theft of 16 weapons stolen from a U.S. Army Reserve Center in Worcester have pleaded guilty.

The Telegram & Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2gGZmZx ) 27-year-old Ashley Bigsbee pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to charges including conspiracy to possess and sell stolen weapons and aiding and abetting the sale of stolen firearms.

Twenty-nine-year-old Tyrone James pleaded guilty under a deal to the same weapons charges and other offenses.

Bigsbee faces up to 20 years behind bars and James faces a maximum of 45 years. Prosecutors agreed to recommend no more than 57 months for James.

Prosecutors say the duo helped sell some of the six assault rifles and 10 handguns stolen from the Lincoln W. Stoddard U.S. Army Reserve Center on Nov. 16, 2015.
