New York - Authorities say two men smuggled guns into New York City by stashing weapons in their luggage on discount buses.
The two are among 19 people whose arrests were announced on Monday.
The case involved 254 guns purchased by an undercover officer in dozens of transactions since last year.
Authorities said two men typically smuggled the weapons on Chinatown-bound buses known for their cheap fares.
Investigators say once the men arrived in New York City, a middleman brokered sales for guns at three times their original value.
