NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A Manhattan jeweler was released from a New Jersey jail Wednesday, after being charged in a sting investigation involving the attempted sale of a shoulder-launched misled.

Yehuda Abraham, 76, who lives in Queens, N.Y., walked out of the Passaic County Jail in Paterson, N.J., Wednesday afternoon after posting a $10 million bond, federal officials said.

Mike Drewniak, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Newark, said Abraham guaranteed the bond with $5 million worth of property and 10 co-signers.

Abraham, who was charged with conspiring to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, faces up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.

Abraham was one of three men arrested Aug. 12 in an international sting investigation.

Hemant Lakhani, 68, a British citizen living in London, was charged with trying to provide material support to a terrorist organization and dealing arms without a license. He remained held without bail in the Passaic jail Wednesday.

The third man, Moinuddeen Ahmed Hameed, 38, was also being held without bail, on money laundering and conspiracy charges.
