Trial postponed for man and woman accused of smuggling firearms across U.S.-Canada border

The trial for a man and woman accused of smuggling firearms across the U.S.-Canada border has been postponed. 

The Bugle-Observer reports the delay is due to issues obtaining disclosure materials from the State of Maine. 

Fifty-six-year-old David Allen Polchies and forty-six-year-old Sharon Ann Weeks, both of Hodgson Road Teeds Mills, were charged with importing restricted firearms after two semi-automatic rifles and prohibited overcapacity magazines were seized at the Woodstock border crossing last October, while a search warrant also found more firearms, ammunition, and a large quantity of cash.  

The three-day trial, which had been scheduled to begin Wednesday, is now set to start on November 7th.
