Successful investigation: Cobra blew up illegal arsenal
The State Criminal Police Office achieved great success in a raid on illegal possession of weapons. The Cobra stormed an apartment in Vienna last Friday, in which huge amounts of weapons and cannabis could be seized. Three Austrian citizens were reported.
The Vienna State Criminal Police Office received a notice regarding illegal possession of weapons and searched several apartments on the basis of an order from the Vienna Public Prosecutor’s Office. The Cobra task force opened the apartments and ensured security during the operations. In the course of the searches, several prohibited weapons were found. These were illegally in the possession of the suspects due to the lack of weapons law documents. Various conversions that were not described in detail could also be found. In addition to these, a large number of other weapons were taken due to a discussion of a provisional weapons ban.
Cannabis also secured
Not only illegal weapons but also illegal drugs were found. Around 240 grams of cannabis herb could be seized. The three alleged perpetrators, a 67-year-old, a 56-year-old and a 29-year-old Austrian citizen, were reported.
