Lichtenstein has been released on $500,000 bail. He faces up to 15 years, unless further charges are filed.

Further updates from the New York Post

Lichtenstein, a married father of three, was arrested by the FBI at his Pomona, N.Y., home on Sunday morning.

Wearing a gray golf shirt, black pants and a black yarmulke, he appeared scrawny and pale as he sniffled loudly and wiped away tears after being hauled into Manhattan federal court late Monday afternoon.

Prosecutor Kan Nawaday asked to have him held without bail as a “danger to the community.”

“He was no less than an arms dealer for the community in New York City,” Nawaday said.

“Our case is very strong. Just last week, this defendant was recorded trying to bribe an NYPD officer to obtain a permit for his clients.”

Nawaday also said that the feds seized two handguns during Lichtenstein’s arrest, and that he also had a shotgun stashed in his home.
