Daly City man sentenced for smuggling firearms to the Philippines
A Filipino man from Daly City, California will be going to jail for smuggling guns to the Philippines without a license in 2015.
Elmer Cuares will serve one year and eight months in jail after pleading guilty to one count of smuggling goods from the US.
According to prosecution filings, Cuares included the guns in a shipment in which he was sending two trucks he had bought from a San Jose company to the Philippines.
After the shipment arrived, Philippine authorities searched the boxes and found three handguns and one assault rifle, which had been disassembled.
Cuares will also serve one year on supervised release after his prison term.
