A police dog currently in service on behalf of the Israeli Border Police discovered four illegal firearms in a concrete factory in the industrial park of Tayibe, an Arab-Israeli city in central Israel.
The dog, named Ben, pointed to a section of the factory and as the police officers searched it they discovered an M16 rifle, a handgun, and two improvised Carlo-type sub-machine guns.
Three local residents of Tayibe were arrested, all of them in their 40's and members of the same family.
The investigation is still ongoing and is part of the ongoing police effort to protect normative Arab-Israelis from criminal activities in their communities.Hagay Hacohen contributed to this report.
