Ky Man Pleads Guilty to Shipping Guns Overseas

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A southern Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to shipping weapons inside hollowed-out video game systems to foreign countries.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Brent Brennenstuhl set sentencing for 34-year-old Adam Bunger of Bowling Green for May 29.

Bunger reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors and admitted to illegally exporting firearms, illegally shipping and transporting firearms in foreign commerce, shipping firearms in foreign commerce with obliterated serial numbers and illegal delivery of firearms for transportation and shipment in foreign commerce.

Federal authorities investigated Bunger last year after a package arrived in Australia and was found in a forensic examination to contain disassembled components of a 9mm pistol, gun parts and two empty magazines that were in a hollowed out Xbox video game system.

Police eventually traced that weapon and others to Bunger.
