Montana man to plead guilty to illegal gun export scheme

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Montana man who fled to Mexico after authorities began investigating him for illegal gun exports has agreed to plead guilty to federal weapons charges.
  
Thirty-seven-year-old Eric Daniel Doyle eluded authorities for more than two years prior to his November apprehension by U.S. marshals in the Mexican state of Sonora.
  
Authorities alleged he used the internet to find buyers for handguns and magazines in countries with strict weapons laws including Australia, Norway, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Sweden. The weapons were shipped through the U.S. Postal Service.
  
Under a plea agreement filed Tuesday, Doyle will plead guilty to illegal exports and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Additional charges would be dropped under the agreement, which needs approval from U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy.
