NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Federal authorities in New Jersey have charged a citizen of the Netherlands with conspiring to ship aircraft parts and other items from the United States to Iran in violation of U.S. law.

Fifty-year-old Ulrich Davis was arrested Saturday at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Davis used his position with a freight forwarding company to arrange shipment of the prohibited items, disguising the nature of the shipments by falsifying documents. It says the shipments included parts for Boeing 747 and C-130 aircraft.

Davis appeared Monday before a U.S. magistrate in Newark and was ordered detained. His federal public defender, K. Anthony Thomas, declined to comment when contacted by The Associated Press.

Davis would face up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted.
