Crime | October 18, 2012, Thursday // 10:38

Bulgarian police have hit upon an illegal workshop for weapons repair and production hidden in a mill near southern town of Asenovgrad.

The Bulgarian anti-organized crime units were working in cooperation with the Dutch law enforcement authorities, who had given them some of the information.

Initially the police found a stack of automatic guns, machine guns and hand guns, some of them of collector's value.

But soon they realized that some of the additionally built premises of the wheat mill were equipped to serve as an arms workshop.

The owner of the premises, a 44-year-old with previous criminal record, could not produce documents allowing him to hold the wepons.

Further investigations are under way.
