In a rare case, federal authorities have indicted the owners of a Laredo gun store on charges that they were selling guns and ammunition to people, knowing the items were to be illegally exported to Mexico.

Agents raided Jacaman Guns and Ammo and an adjacent business, A-Frame for You, on Monday and arrested the owners, Robert Jacaman Sr. and his wife, Veronica, U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson of Houston said in a news release.

The Jacamans were indicted last week on charges that they conspired to acquire and sell thousands of rounds of .223-caliber ammo to an illegal immigrant; 1,000 rounds of .223-caliber ammo and 1,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo to a Mexican national here on a nonimmigrant visa; and hundreds of .223-caliber ammo to a convicted felon. All are people prohibited from buying guns in the United States.
