Police discover illegal arsenals

Guns, grenades and flamethrowers discovered in bust

Police have uncovered hundreds of weapons stored in two illegal arsenals in Palma and Zamora.

In all 276 guns were found, all of which were in good working order and many which had never been used. Besides the guns, police also found numerous grenades, mortars, bazookas, flame throwers and 350 kilos of ammunition. Some weapons are officially classified as ´weapons of war´ for which no civilian licence is permitted.

Five people were arrested as part of the operation, which lasted several months, and are accused of illegal possession and arms trafficking.
