KUWAIT: Ministry of Interior’s Relations and Security Media Department said that criminal security detectives recently arrested five suspects with possession of unlicensed weapons and ammunition during raids carried out by weapons detectives after the grace period to hand over unlicensed weapons was over. According to case papers, investigations led to a citizen possessing unlicensed weapons and ammunition at his house in Fintas.

On raiding the house and searching it, detectives only found some bullets, but the suspect confessed that he sold the weapons to a person in Sabah Al- Salem. The buyer’s house was later raided and detectives found an AK-47 rifle, a gun and a huge amount of ammunition inside. Consequently, the second suspect led police to a third one in Rumaithiya and after raiding his house, detectives found a gun and a cardboard box of ammunition. Accordingly, the third suspect led police to a fourth man; to whom he had sold a gun, and he was later arrested.

Rumors refuted
Separately, the Relations and Security Media Department denied social media reports alleging that some masked and armed radicals broke into a citizen’s house in Mubarak Al-Kabeer, destroyed the house’s contents and threatening the citizen and his family, before fleeing. A citizen in his sixties had called 112, reporting that masked militants had broken into his house. But when police rushed to the scene, no trace of any break in was detected even after checking neighbors’ surveillance cameras.
