CBS News reports:
The owner of a Texas company that sells blueprints to make untraceable 3-D printed guns has been arrested in Taiwan, CBS News has confirmed. Cody Wilson has been accused of having sex with an underage girl and paying her $500 afterward in Texas.
Taiwan’s National Immigration Agency and Criminal Investigation Bureau confirmed to CBS News Friday that Wilson had been arrested. The bureau had earlier confirmed that Wilson was in Taiwan after arriving on the island earlier this month.
The bureau also said that Wilson’s passport has been nullified, which means he’s staying in Taiwan illegally, CBS News has confirmed. After a federal court barred Wilson from posting the printable gun blueprints online for free last month, he announced he had begun selling them for any amount of money to U.S. customers through his website.
Fox News reports that Wilson had rented an apartment in Taipei with a lease that was to begin today.
