Hampton man faces gun charges in N.J.

NEWARK, N.J. — A New Hampshire man has been indicted in New Jersey on gun-running charges.

Matthew Crisafi, 38, of Hampton, the owner of a small trucking firm, is accused in an indictment handed up by a New Jersey federal grand jury of using a website that specialized in illegal sales activity to offer guns for sale.

The indictment alleges Crisafi sold $11,000 worth of weapons to an undercover officer, including semi-automatic rifles and handguns.

The transactions allegedly were made using bitcoins, an Internet-based currency that allows users to conceal their identities.

The guns were delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, the Justice Department said, and were intended to be sent to locations outside of the United States.

Crisafi was arrested Friday in Hampton by federal customs and Homeland Security agents and charged with smuggling firearms, unlicensed sale of firearms and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

He will be arraigned in federal court in Newark.
