PHOENIX (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to several years behind
bars for their roles in a gun smuggling ring that was part of the
U.S. government's Operation Fast and Furious.

The U.S. Justice Department says Jacob Anthony Montelongo was
sentenced Monday in Phoenix to nearly 3 1/2 years in federal prison
after pleading guilty to conspiracy and dealing guns without a
license. Sean Christopher Steward received a nine-year sentence for
conspiracy and lying.

During the Fast and Furious operation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives agents hoped to track illegally obtained
weapons to high-level arms traffickers, but authorities lost track of
many of the guns.

The operation led to congressional inquiries. It was exposed after
two of the illegally obtained weapons were found at the scene of the
2010 fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
