A 39-year-old man from the hillside village of Arakapas was arrested on Thursday night after being found to be in possession of a parlour gun.

The arrest was made after police obtained a warrant to search the man’s house after a burglary was reported in the nearby village of Melini.

In addition to the gun, police found one military cartridge, two counterfeit parlour gun cartridges, three other parlour gun cartridges, and three cartridges of “unknown” nature.

They established that the man is not the legal owner of any firearm and arrested him.

Subsequent searches of the man’s house turned up “a large amount of various tools and machinery”.

The police’s investigation into the matter is ongoing.
