NEW YORK — An ex-Army soldier who shipped two grenades back to the U.S. from his service in Iraq and then took them from Fort Bragg, N.C., to his home in New York City has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Anthony Cibelli pleaded guilty in September to transporting the grenades without a license. He was sentenced Thursday.

The 25-year-old Cibelli was discharged from the Army in 2010.

Authorities searched his Bronx home last December. They said they found two grenades on the roof outside his bedroom window plus four guns, two improvised explosive devices and ammunition.

Cibelli told officers he'd stashed the items in a container he shipped from Iraq to Fort Bragg. Prosecutor Preet Bharara said Cibelli put himself and others in his neighborhood at risk.
