Two trade show workers have been arrested on federal weapon charges after the theft of dozens of firearms from the gun industry’s biggest annual convention last month in Las Vegas.

Court documents say 27-year-old Jamikko Foster and 28-year-old Eduardo Limon were arrested Monday and federal agents recovered more than 60 pistols, rifles, machine guns and silencers at their homes.

Both men were arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas and freed pending another court hearing Feb. 27. They are identified as members of the Teamsters union in Las Vegas.

Limon’s lawyer, Chris Rasmussen, says his client hopes to quickly resolve the criminal case.

Documents say Foster was a forklift operator at the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s SHOT Show convention at the Sands Expo on the Las Vegas Strip
