NATIONAL POLICE HAVE DISMANTLED ONE OF THE LARGEST CRIMINAL NETWORKS DEDICATED TO ILLICIT ARMS TRAFFICKING IN SPAIN

A news release from the Policia Nacional on 27 June which provides details about an operation against arms traffickers that yielded, among other items, an (expended?) C90 rocket launcher, grenades, anti-tank training mines, 7 automatic weapons, and around 55,000 rounds of ammunition.  The network involved 15 Spanish provinces, and 21 people were arrested for being involved in the illegal purchase and sale of firearms. The criminals are said to have also used postal parcel services to send and receive key pieces, which they then used to rehabilitate or assemble weapons.
