BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — A southern Kentucky man has been sentenced to 24 months in federal prison on charges of shipping weapons inside hollowed-out video game systems overseas.

The Daily News ( reports U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley handed down the sentence on Monday to 34-year-old Adam Bunger of Bowling Green.

Bunger pleaded guilty in March to illegally exporting firearms, illegally shipping and transporting firearms in foreign commerce, shipping firearms in foreign commerce with obliterated serial numbers and illegal delivery of firearms for transportation and shipment in foreign commerce.

Federal authorities investigated Bunger after a package arrived in Australia and was found in a forensic examination to contain disassembled components of a 9mm pistol and gun parts that were in a hollowed out Xbox video game system.

Police traced that weapon and others to Bunger.
