Man Sentenced To 2 Years For Smuggling AK-47 Parts

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 30-year-old man has been sentenced to two years in prison for smuggling AK-47 parts to Paraguay.

Fabian Patricio Lojano-Lojano, of Minneapolis, was sentenced Tuesday in St. Paul on one count of smuggling goods from the U.S. He was charged Oct. 12, 2011 and pleaded guilty Oct. 27, 2011.

Lojano-Lojano admitted in his plea agreement to dropping off a package June 23, 2010 at a UPS station in Minneapolis, which he claimed contained T-shirts but actually contained parts for AK-47 rifles.

On July 1, 2010, the UPS station received additional packages from Lojano-Lojano with the same destination address as the previous packages. Those packages also contained parts for six AK-47 rifles.

In all, Lojano-Lojano admitted sending packages to Paraguay on 46 occasions between September of 2009 and June of 2010.

    Another example of how Obammy will destroy our sacred 2nd Amendment Rights! The UN is coming, people, and the so-called White House wants to make sure that we can’t defend ourselves when they do!

      …and yet still another example of racist Minnesotans.

    Racism is just a tired myth used by inferior mintories to excuse failure.
