A 40-year-old security guard was detained on Tuesday evening, in connection with an unconscious man, who had apparently overdosed on drugs, found at the Atarot industrial zone on Monday afternoon. During a questioning session, police learned that the men had argued over money two weeks ago, following which the suspect apparently drugged the victim and stole his gun. The man, who police said was Jewish, admitted to the incident, returned the gun, and will be brought for a remand hearing on Wednesday.
