Four alarm pistols with ammunition, four brass knuckles and numerous utensils with a National Socialist background were seized in the apartment of a 21-year-old Salzburg resident on Friday afternoon.
After an anonymous tip-off that the man should have firearms and brass knuckles, the police carried out a house search on Friday afternoon in the apartment of a 21-year-old Salzburg resident in the Elisabeth suburb.
Even through the open door of the apartment, the officers could see a weapon in the living room. The search, ordered immediately by the Salzburg public prosecutor’s office, revealed four alarm pistols with ammunition, four brass knuckles and numerous utensils with a National Socialist background.
There is already an upright ban on weapons against the 21-year-old from Salzburg, which is why all weapons and prohibited items have been seized. The accused stated that he only bought the prohibited items out of historical interest. He is reported according to the Prohibition and Weapons Act.
