Three men accused of sending sensitive military technology to Russia have been arrested in New York.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers has more:

The three men, one from New York City and two Russian nationals, are charged in what federal authorities say is a scheme to illegally export advanced military technology used in missile guidance systems to Russia.

They were arrested on Thursday, accused of using two Brooklyn-based front companies to buy and illegally export the sensitive electronics without a mandatory federal license.

Those microelectronics are restricted for "anti-terrorism and national security reasons".

Authorities say the men also doctored records to conceal where they were shipping the electronics.

They are being held in jail without bail, and it's not known if they have attorneys.
