Paul James Kryscuk, 35, also waived his right to a detention hearing and will be transported to North Carolina by U.S. Marshals

Kryscuk and Liam Montgomery Collins, 21, were charged with three counts including conspiracy to manufacture firearms and ship them interstate, interstate transportation of firearms without a license, and interstate transportation of a firearm not registered as required.

The men sought to "unlawfully enrich themselves and others, by among other things, manufacturing and selling hard to obtain firearms and firearm parts in a manner that the 'government would not know' the purchasers had them," the indictment stated.

The documents allege that since May 2019, Collins has made multiple money transfers through his personal account to Kryscuk to purchase firearms, including a 9mm pistol and suppressor and a short barrel rifle. Kryscuk is accused of purchasing items from vendors to manufacture firearms and suppressors. Officials say that he then mailed the weapons from Idaho to Jacksonville, North Carolina. Kryscuk also shipped the short barrel rifle, not registered as required by the federal government, to Collins. Duncan was aware of and participated in the conspiracy.

Attorneys for Duncan and Kryscuk did not immediately return e-mails seeking comment Thursday night. Collins‘ attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

Other documents related to Duncan's alleged crimes or anything mentioning the "list" of names remain sealed.

Capt. Joseph Butterfield, Marine Corps Spokesman, told NBC News, that "Liam Collins, 21, and Jordan Duncan, 25, are former Marines. The Marine Corps will continue to assist the investigating authorities in any way we can. The serious allegations are not a reflection of the Marine Corps, do not reflect the oath every Marine takes to support and defend the constitution, and do not align with our core values of honor, courage, and commitment."

Collins was reportedly among a group of U.S. servicemen whose name appeared on a neo-Nazi message board in 2019, spurring the Marines Corps to launch an investigation into his extremist ties.

The Marine Corps confirmed that Collins was discharged last month after three years of service. He was most recently assigned to Camp Lejeune.

"Collins’ premature discharge is indicative of the fact that the character of his service was incongruent with Marine Corps' expectations and standards. Due to the associated administrative processes, further details are not releasable," Capt. Butterfield said.

According to personnel records, Duncan served five years in the Marines, leaving the service in 2018.
