In the early morning hours of February 18, the police, the SEK and the USK and service dog handlers with police dogs posted themselves at several locations in the Bamberg region. A short time later they arrest two men, and a third is arrested a day later. In addition, the officers seized a large number of contraband goods – firearms, crossbows, ammunition, hand grenades.

First arrests in December

It is not the first time that the investigators in the Bamberg district have struck. In December 2020, investigators targeted four men who are said to have illegally traded in weapons and narcotics.

 The y were arrested, and the police found relevant evidence during searches. In the course of the investigation, the officers were able to locate other suspects, and in February the forces struck again.
