Indonesian man accused of trying to export rifle scopes

by Ryan J. Foley from The Rhinelander Daily News

A federal grand jury in Madison returned a two-count indictment against Doli Syarief Pulungan, who faces up to 15 years in federal prison. The indictment accuses Pulungan of sending an e-mail in July instructing an unnamed person living in Wisconsin to order 100 Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T Riflescopes, used on rifles such as the M-16 and AR-15. In September, Pulungan asked another person in Wisconsin to buy 100 more of the same scopes, and to ship the equipment to Saudi Arabia and then on to Indonesia, the indictment said. A second count in the indictment accuses Pulungan, age unknown, of lying to the FBI about whether he had been living in the U.S.
