TRENTON, N.J. - May 27, 2010 -- New Jersey authorities say nine people, including a soldier at Fort Dix, are charged with gun trafficking.
The soldier is charged with unlawfully mailing a gun to two men in New Jersey.
Two New Jersey residents and three men from Virginia are accused of running a network that prosecutors say brought guns to Trenton and sold them to gang members.
