It seems the US can not go without a hot spy story this summer. After Anna Chapman was banished to Moscow earlier this month, another Anna has entered the stage.
Anna Fermanova was arrested in New York for trying to smuggle several state-of-the-art night gunfight devices into Russia. Fermanova says she purchased them online for her husband and his friends, who happen to be fans of hunting.
A 24-year-old woman is under house arrest in Plano after trying to transport three high-tech night vision scopes to Russia without a license.
Acting on a tip, federal officials searched the luggage of Anna Fermanova at New York’s JFK International Airport on March 1 and found a Raptor night vision weapons sight and two advanced rifle sights stuffed in a pair of UGG boots.
Officials confiscated the scopes and allowed Fermanova to continue on a flight to Moscow, where she lives with her husband. The scopes are among items on the U.S. Munitions List that require a license from the Department of State before they can be exported.
Fermanova was arrested earlier this month when she returned to the United States to visit family.
