Kentucky Man Pleads Guilty for Selling Guns He Hid in ‘Hollow Xboxes’

A Bowling Green, Kentucky man has pled guilty to charges stemming from the illegal international sale of guns. The real hook for our readers is that the 33-year-old used video game containers to ship the disassembled guns and ammo to his customers in Australia, Sweden and England.

Thirty-four-year-old Adam Joseph Bunger admitted to hiding disassembled guns and other components such as magazines inside the empty cases of Xbox 360 consoles and shipping them to customers in Australia, Sweden and England where gun laws are strict. Bunger is not licensed to sell firearms in the United States and the people who purchased the guns were not licensed importers, dealers or collectors, according to court documents.

According to an investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Bunger conducted his business from a site called Black Market Reloaded, a site headquartered in Dresden, Germany. The website offers a secure location for sellers and buyers to make deals for everything from alcohol and drugs to firearms and forged documents.

Bunger pled guilty to "shipping a firearm in foreign commerce, delivering a firearm to an unlicensed person without notice to the carrier and obliterating the serial number from a firearm."

Bunger could face up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in May.
