Police on Thursday seized an assault rifle and three pistols in Larnaca and arrested the 49-year-old owner of the house they were found in.
Following a tip off, officers raided the man’s house in the area of Livadhia just after 11am. Inside they found a Kalashnikov, two revolvers and another pistol, ammunition of various calibres, and a ski mask.
The man, who is known to police from previous cases, was arrested and is expected to be brought before a court on Friday.
The weapons will undergo forensic tests to determine whether they had been used in any criminal acts in the past.
