Baltimore County Police have arrested a pair of vendors accused of selling high-capacity magazines at a gun show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. 

Officers say an undercover detective saw a vendor sell what appeared to be a 30-round magazine at a gun show last Friday. Maryland law prohibits buying or selling magazines over 20 rounds. 

Police talked with the customers and seized the magazine. 

The detective then went to the vendor and asked to buy a 30-round magazine. Officers say the detective bought two magazines, which were labeled as holding 20 rounds, but instead, were 30-round magazines. Police say they recovered 121 additional illegal magazines from the vendor stand. 

John Heilmeier, 57, of Cumberland, Va., and Richard Summers, 64, of Waldorf, Va. are each charged with a firearms violation.
