Men arrested for carrying weapon


TWO men aged 23 and 31 were arrested on Saturday (November 21) when the Guardia Civil found a gun in the glove compartment of their car during a routine check on vehicles on the A7 motorway near Almuñecar.

The Volvo the men were travelling in was stopped at about 5.30pm and, noting that the driver had a police record, officers decided to search that car and discovered a black Star pistol with no series number and five bullets hidden amongst other items in the glove compartment.

Although the pair, both from Granada, denied all knowledge of the gun, they were arrested for illegal weapon possession, the police force reported in a statement.
