TRENTON – Acting Attorney General Andrew J. Bruck today announced the indictment of three men for allegedly trafficking untraceable “ghost guns” from Pennsylvania into New Jersey.

The Division of Criminal Justice Gangs & Organized Crime Bureau obtained a state grand jury indictment on Friday, Nov. 12, charging all three men with second-degree Conspiracy, second-degree Transporting Weapons into the State for Unlawful Sale or Transfer, second-degree Unlawful Possession of an Assault Firearm, third-degree Unlawful Possession of a Firearm without a Serial Number, third-degree Manufacture, Transport, Disposition of an Assault Firearm, third-degree Transporting a Manufactured Firearm without a Serial Number, and other weapons charges.
