A Bowling Green man accused of international gun trafficking is no longer in custody. A federal judge on Friday morning granted bond to Adam Joseph Bunger.
Adam Bunger is accused of shipping firearms to England, Sweden, and Australia, all countries with stringent gun laws. 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.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jo Lawless argued before U.S. District Judge Brent Brennenstuhl that Bunger should remain behind bars, claiming he was a flight risk and a danger to the community. She added that the government anticipates bringing additional charges.
“We have truly only scratched the surface,” said Lawless.
Not only was Bunger allegedly shipping firearms in illegal in other countries, Lawless said he was stripping the weapons of serial numbers. She also contended the investigation had turned up evidence of Bunger also trading in marijuana, fake IDs, and stolen credit cards.
