A French former prisoner who had converted to Islam while incarcerated was arrested after trying to have a sub-machine gun delivered to him by post.

The 30-year-old, who was not identified by name, was arrested last week in the city of Angers in Western France at a local post office while attempting to pick up the firearm that had originally come from the United States, Le Parisien reports.

On Friday, the man was indicted on charges of importing category A weapons, according to public prosecutor Yves Gambert.

Local media also added that the suspect had served a seven-year prison sentence in 2010 for violence with a weapon and targetted a police officer.
