On Dec. 23 ICE special agents arrested Begmar Ivan Ruiz-Zuniga, 30, a citizen of Mexico, and Miguel Angel Dominguez, 25, a U.S. citizen, in an East El Paso home. Both men are charged with illegally smuggling weapons into Mexico from the United States.

Other agencies participating in the ICE-led ongoing investigation include: the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); the El Paso Police Department; and the El Paso Sheriff's Office.

Authorities seized the following items: 11 AK-47 7.62mm X 39mm assault rifles, one upper receiver for an AR-15 assault rifle, two military-style bayonets, ballistic body armor, and miscellaneous military equipment. Among the 5,664 rounds seized were 2,560 rounds of Russian ammunition, 70 rounds of law enforcement 12-gauge shotgun demo rounds, seven M-16 ammunition magazines, and 20 rounds of armor-piercing .223 caliber ammunition.
