Chinese national pleads guilty to trying to smuggle sensors made in New Mexico for US military

A Chinese national accused of trying to smuggle sensors made for the U.S. military has pleaded guilty to violating the Arms Export Control Act.

The U.S. attorney's office in Albuquerque announced Wednesday that 28-year-old Bo Cai also pleaded guilty to violating the International Traffic in Arms Regulations by scheming illegally to export defense articles to China.

Court documents say Cai and his cousin, 29-year-old Wentong Cai, were arrested on charges of smuggling goods and violating the Arms Export Control Act, which makes a license necessary to ship certain items to China, Syria and Sudan.

Authorities say the suspects met with an undercover agent about buying the sensors made in New Mexico for military guidance systems.

Bo Cai faces 20 years in prison. Sentencing has not been scheduled.
