Man pleads guilty in gun smuggling case

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A second man has pleaded guilty in Mississippi to charges he tried to smuggle guns from the United States to Mexico.

Jose Luis Santos-Garcia was charged with attempting to smuggle two pistols, three bullet-proof vests and stolen four-wheelers to Mexico. He has pleaded guilty Monday.

His nephew, Javier Molina, had already pleaded guilty in the case.

Santos-Garcia was arrested on Interstate 10 in Jackson County on Aug. 28. Authorities placed a GPS tracking device on the truck. About two months later, Molina was pulled over in the same truck on I-10 and arrested with nine rifles, five shotguns, eight pistols and ammunition.
