NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say three people are accused of trafficking guns between Georgia and New York.

A New York prosecutor says a Long Island couple and a Marietta man have been indicted following a six-month investigation.

Detectives bought guns, bulletproof vests and a silencer during meetings at New York hotels and a gas station.

Authorities say the investigation has kept 53 handguns off the streets of New York.

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota (SPOH'-tuh) says the defendants are Shawdale Frederick and Janet Lewis of Middle Island, N.Y., and Joshua "Butch" Galbert of Marietta.

They've pleaded not guilty to criminal sale of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon charges.

Information on their attorneys was not immediately available.
