POLICE on the Costa del Sol have seized an arsenal of weapons from a man who believed that US space agency NASA was monitoring him via a lamp post.

The raid came after a concerned neighbour reported that an ‘aggressive individual’ was making a commotion in his flat.

And when investigators swooped on the address in the Miraflores de Los Angeles neighbourhood of Malaga City, the culprit reportedly screamed “I am going to kill you all,” sparking a call for backup.

Once the area was secure, a senior officer called the property’s telephone, quickly convincing the unnamed 35-year-old to step outside.

He told them that he was “fine” but NASA had hacked his computer and were watching him through a modified lamp post outside his home.

An ambulance was called amid concerns over his mental health, and while waiting for medics to arrive the man revealed that he had bought a number of weapons - including a hand gun, cross bow, air rifle, arrows and bullets - to protect himself against potential attacks.

The man was transferred to the Civil Hospital and the arms confiscated.
