A Navy SEAL and two other men have been busted in an ATF sting in which they allegedly smuggled illegal firearms, including AK-47 assault rifles, from Iraq and Afghanistan, and sold them to an undercover agent, federal authorities in Las Vegas said Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Nicholas Bickle, 33, assigned to a SEAL team based in Coronado, Calif,  Richard Paul, 34, of Durango, Colo., and Andrew Kaufman, 36, of Las Vegas,  were indicted in the case, the Times reported.

The three allegedly sold 18 AK-47s and 14 other firearms to an undercover ATF agent in  Las Vegas, Durango, and Bayfield, Colo., according to Daniel G. Bogden, U.S. attorney for Nevada.

Authorities said the AK-47s sold for $1,300 each and six handguns for $300 apiece, the LA Times reported.
