Arms dealers arrested in Gran Canaria
The National Police based in Las Palmas have arrested four men, aged 27, 38, 42 and 48 years, and a 42-year-old woman in Gran Canaria's capital for illegal arms trafficking. The gang bought the nine millimetre firearms and ammunition legally from arms dealers in Tenerife and Gran Canaria and then converted them into automatic weapons that they sold on the black market.
