Five New York City police officers are among 12 people arrested in a gun smuggling sting operation, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the charges have not officially been made public.

In the current case, which also involves three former NYPD officers, a corrections officer from New Jersey and three civilians, the suspects are accused of involvement in a ring that was trying to traffic automatic rifles, handguns, stolen cigarettes and slot machines. The FBI and the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau ran the joint undercover operation.
