Bowling Green Man Indicted on Federal Firearms Violations
A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted a Bowling Green man accused of international gun trafficking. A four-count indictment was returned against 33-year-old Adam Joseph Bunger, who stands accused of shipping firearms to England, Sweden, and Australia, all countries with stringent gun laws.
Between June and August of this year, he allegedly used a website called Black Market Reloaded to sell the weapons and used aliases to ship them overseas. The firearms were supposedly disassembled, and the parts hidden in video game consoles. Federal prosecutors claim he was also stripping the weapons of serial numbers.
If convicted on all counts, Bunger faces up to 25 years in prison and a $1 million fine. He remains free on bond and is scheduled for arraignment in U.S. District Court in Bowling Green on October 30.
