CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Filipino national has admitted to running an operation that smuggled more than $200,000 worth of firearm parts out of the United States.

Thirty-eight-year-old Kirby Santos pleaded guilty on Wednesday in front of a federal district judge in Camden.

Santos admitted that he purchased firearm parts from suppliers in the United States from 2008 to 2013. He had the parts sent to people in Toms River, New Jersey, and Lynwood, Washington, and had them repackage the parts to send to him in the Philippines.

Santos was arrested in Guam in March. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced Jan. 20.

Abelardo Delmundo, of Toms River, pleaded guilty to taking part in the conspiracy in April and is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 10.
