Arms uncovered as part of underworld crackdown

A revolver, a hand gun and 107 live rounds, all in usable condition were located around noon at the Polemidia water reservoir as part of operations to clamp down on organised crime, the Limassol CID chief, Ioannis Soteriades said on Thursday.

The items were located following information given to the Limassol police chief, Soteriades said, on suspicious movement at the reservoir in Polemidia. Following a search in the area, the items were located in a nylon bag, placed in a bush.

The items were sent for lab tests, he said. It is believed that their owners either wanted to get rid of them or had relocated them, Soteriades said, as “criminals started feeling the police grip tighter around them.”
