Kiryat Arba man arrested for weapons dealing

A Kiryat Arba man was arrested earlier this month for allegedly running an illegal weapons shop, the Jerusalem Magistrates' Court released for publication on Thursday night. The man, who was caught with some 15 Uzi rifles in his possession, claimed that he was selling them to collectors. During his investigation, it was revealed that the suspect had bought the guns from a northern resident who had a gun license, and was selling them to whoever wanted to buy them. The suspect also bought some of the weapons from a Center resident, who acquired the guns at a cost of NIS 142,000. All those involved in the affair will be charged on Monday with arms dealing and criminal connections.
