KY Man Charged with Shipping Guns Internationally
LOUISVILLE, KY - A Kentucky man has been charged with using an online black market to ship firearms and parts to foreign buyers by tucking the weapons away in Xbox consoles and DVD players.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says 33-year-old Adam Joseph Bunger of Bowling Green pulled off the scheme from June through August. ATF Special Agent David S. Hayes wrote in a criminal complaint that Bunger sent an Uzi-style pistol to the United Kingdom and a 9mm pistol to Australia.
Hayes says Bunger used a website called Black Market Reloaded to sell the weapons while using at least two aliases to disguise his identity.
There was no attorney listed for Bunger in court records. A message left for his business in Bowling Green was not immediately returned Thursday.
