“Bulgarian authorities arrested seven people and seized a major haul of weapons and ammunition that would have been enough to ‘arm two platoons’ in a series of operations over five days, the head of the police's Directorate for Combating Organized Crime, GDCOD, Ivaylo Spiridonov, said on Wednesday, showcasing piles of guns and ammunition.
“The operation was launched on November 30 in Sofia, when GDCOD officers arrested a person identified as Ivaylo Popov who was leaving a garage containing 65 automatic rifles, 43 handguns, 37 machine pistols, 400 gun barrels, 14 launchers for rocket propelled grenades, RPGs, and around 50,000 bullets, according to the authorities.”

A bit noteworthy, police say some of those arrested “previously worked in the local Arsenal-Kazanlak weapons plant, one of the largest producers of light assault weapons and munition in Bulgaria.
