Colonie pair accused of having illegal guns

Two Colonie residents were arrested on illegal gun charges after they were found hunting in the Pittstown State Forest.

Kevin B. Wang, 28, and Kyle E. Zheng, 22, were shooting at the Grafton forest on Friday at around 4 p.m., New York State Police said. A forest ranger found Wang and Zheng had multiple illegal non-compliant firearms. The ranger confiscated the weapons.

Police searched their homes and found two 3D printers, multiple 3D-printed gun parts, armorer tools used to assemble guns, a ghost gun, numerous boxes of ammunition and body armor. Police also found methamphetamines, psilocybin mushrooms and cash.

Both were charged with 12 total felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon. They were arraigned in Grafton Town Court and sent without bail to Rensselaer County Jail.

The investigation continues, said police, and more charges are expected.
