Alleged Hampton gun runner to plead guilty
Matthew Crisafi, 38, of Hampton signed a plea agreement in U.S. District Court in New Jersey that is expected to settle charges that include selling firearms without a license, smuggling goods from the United States and conspiracy to commit money laundering, according to court records.
Crisafi, who is free on $50,000 bail, has also indicated that he wants to plead guilty in Rockingham County Superior Court to drug charges that stem from the Nov. 7 raid of his Hampton home, according to a court order.
Federal agents and Hampton police arrested Crisafi following a months-long investigation into illegal sales of firearms through a TOR network — software used to provide anonymity online.
The gun was being offered for sale on the underground Web marketplace “Black Market Reloaded,” court records say. Investigators compare the BMR online marketplace, only accessible via specialized software, to a version of eBay or Amazon that sold weapons illegally.
Crisafi, who owns an independent trucking company, arranged to ship the weapons through New Jersey en route to Thailand, according to Landers.
“You are and will be preferred when it comes to price,” Crisafi allegedly wrote. “I want to make your customers happy along with a profit.”
