Two men on Long Island are under arrest for allegedly taking part in an illegal gun trafficking operation.

Suffolk County Police displayed an arsenal of guns at a news conference in Hauppauge on Monday.

During a nearly year long investigation, detectives discovered some of the weapons were purchased in Florida and resold on Long Island.

A third man from Florida was also indicted in the case.

Investigators say the trio purchased and resold more than a dozen handguns.
