DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Federal authorities have arrested two Chinese nationals — one of them a former Iowa State student — accused of smuggling and other federal crimes.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1kUN22l ) it obtained federal documents Friday showing that the former student, 29-year-old Wentong Cai, and an associate, 28-year-old Bo Cai, were arrested in February.

Arrest warrants say Wentong Cai had contact with an undercover federal agent posing as an international distributor of trade-protected technology. Court documents say Wentong told the agent he wanted to smuggle nearly two dozen ARS-14 sensors into China. The sensors help gauge precise motion control in aerial and ground-based vehicles. They have civilian uses, but are mainly used by the military.

Court documents don't indicate what the men planned to do with the sensors.
