Soldier Indicted on Gun-Trafficking Charges in N.J.

TRENTON, N.J.-- New Jersey authorities say nine people, including a soldier at Fort Dix, are charged with gun trafficking.

The soldier is charged with unlawfully mailing a gun to two men in New Jersey.

Two New Jersey residents and three men from Virginia are accused of running a network that prosecutors say brought guns to Trenton and sold them to gang members.

In all, about 85 guns were seized, including a machine gun and grenade launcher.

Attorney General Paula Dow says several of the guns have been connected to drug and homicide investigations.
