3 Abutbul crime family members arrested for possession of grenades

Police arrested three men described as members of the Abutbul crime organization in Hadera in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The arrests were made by the intelligence branch of the International Crime Investigations Unit, which swooped on the men after they arrived at a hideout in Hadera in order to pick up stun grenades. Police believe the suspects had planned to use the grenades in underworld wars with rivals. The three men will appear before a Petah Tikvah Magistrate on Wednesday for a custody hearing.
