How to Become a Bounty Hunter



4 Family Members Busted for Trying to Sell F-5 Jet Engines to Iran

Four family members have been indicted in Miami on charges of attempting to sell 22 F-5 fighter jet engines to Iran for $320,000.

Only problem with their plan was that they tried selling the engines to an undercover federal agent, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami said.

According to the allegations in the indictment and the previously filed complaint affidavit, Felipe Echeverry and three of his relatives conspired to sell the engines to an undercover agent and agreed to help the agent to export the engines from Miami to Iran through Panama.

“The sales of arms and other commodities to Iran is illegal,” said Miami U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer.”When unscrupulous dealers look the other way and knowingly agree to sell military- use items knowing they are destined for Iran, they not only break our nation’s laws, but also endanger our national security.”
