  • The discovery came after further investigation into a Dutch criminal network which was brought down last year when six tonnes of cocaine were seized from a Malaga industrial

National Police and the Guardia Civil announced on Monday that an arsenal containing fully-loaded military-grade weaponry had been located in a garage in Malaga. This came as a result of further investigations into the activities of a Dutch criminal network which was brought down last October when six tonnes of cocaine were seized from a Malaga industrial estate.

The garage, rented by one of the members of the gang, was found to contain an AK-47, two Skorpion assault rifles, two semiautomatic pistols, a revolver, four hand grenades, three silencers and plenty of ammunition - all ready to be used, hidden inside a vehicle.

The joint operation also led to the seizing of 35 vehicles, most of which were high-range, and which contained various sophisticated hidden compartments for the trafficking of drugs and weapons.
