Man with citizenship in three locations charged with firearms trafficking

Jeshua Lion Myers, known as Dually, age 28, holding citizenship in Canada, the United States, and the Bahamas, was arrested and charged with firearms trafficking. This offense could lead to a maximum of 15 years in prison, as announced by U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross. Myers was accused of offering to supply large quantities of firearms for smuggling into Canada from the U.S., aiming to sell them at significant profit margins.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Adler, Myers arranged a deal in the Buffalo area to smuggle 19 firearms, purchased for $33,000, into Canada. This operation included assorted magazines, ammunition, and weapon components, following a controlled purchase by Homeland Security Investigations Border Enforcement Security Task Force on December 20, 2023. Myers was later apprehended after planning another firearm purchase in Miami, Florida, for smuggling purposes.

Following his initial court appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael J. Roemer, Myers was detained. The case, spearheaded by various law enforcement agencies including Homeland Security Investigations and the ATF, emphasizes the ongoing efforts to curb cross-border firearm trafficking.
