Casarrubios Del Monte - A minor near the city of Toledo in Spain has been arrested by police for selling hundreds of illegal weapons online. Officers found a huge arsenal of these weapons in his home.
Authorities reported on Tuesday that the minor was arrested by the Spanish National Police in the village of Casarrubios del Monte on the charge of possession, production and sale of illegal weapons.
In the suspect's house, police found more than 200 illegal weapons, including daggers, flick knives, knuckledusters, pepper sprays, rifles and also tasers, camouflaged as mobile phones. Reportedly the latter was the biggest seller online at a cost of 40 euros each.
The selection of Italian switchblade knives found carried SS and Nazi inscriptions.
The minor apparently even manufactured his own brass knuckledusters, using various molds, and sold them for 25 euros each.
While police did not reveal the age of the suspect, they did state that he was under 18.
Authorities believe that the under-age suspect sold most of the weapons on a website, which the investigating team first came across in February. Various investigations brought them to the home of the minor.
Toledo has a tradition as the sword and knife capital of Spain, and it seems the young man was continuing the tradition.
A cache of illegal weapons were seized and an under-18 minor arrested near Toledo in Spain.
