Dustin Robalino-Arcos, 34, of Lewisville, Texas, is being held on $100,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail on a host of weapons-related charges.
An undercover detective with the Bergen County Narcotic Task Force connected with Robalino-Arcos after learning in July that he was running guns in the New York/New Jersey area, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.
Robalino-Arcos agreed to sell the undercover the six handguns for $7,200 during a meet in Edgewater, Molinelli said.
Detectives watched him get into his car just after 10 p.m. Friday, then followed him briefly before quickly moving in, stopping the car in a safe place in Jersey City and getting Robalino-Arcos into custody, the prosecutor said.
All six guns found are illegal, he said.
Molinelli thanked the Edgewater and Jersey City police for their assistance.
