YEREVAN (Arka)—Armenia’s National Security Service (NSS) said on Friday it has found ‘an arsenal of weapons’ in a Yerevan resident’s apartment which it searched as part of a criminal case involving illegal purchase and storage of weapons.
According to a statement issued on August 5 by the NSS, its officers found about 6 thousand rounds of ammunition, 15 grenades, fuses for grenades, ‘TNT’ explosives, detonator capsules, flares, ammunition for machine guns, an anti-tank mortar, radio communication devices, a mine detector, etc.
The NSS claimed that the ammunition allegedly belongs to the “Daredevils of Sasoun,” who seized a police compound in Erebuni, Yerevan. “Two people have been detained. According to the procedural and operational data, the found ammunition may belong to a criminal group that had seized a police station building in Yerevan on July 17. This and other theories are being now examined,” the NSS said.
