NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City police officer and his two brothers have been charged with conspiring to deal high-powered firearms to potential buyers in the Philippines.

Federal authorities said Friday the three tried to sell assault rifles and pistols without government approval from January 2009 to March 2013.

One of the brothers is a federal customs officer in Los Angeles. He and the police officer are awaiting court appearances. The third is at large.

Evidence against the men includes emailed photos of them posing with the weaponry. The names of their attorneys were not immediately available.
