  • [01] Counter-terrorism squad finds arms cache, vehicles at hideout in Marathonas

    ANA-MPA -- An arms cache containing rockets, Kalashnikov rifles, ammunition and other heavy weaponry has been found at the Marathonas, Attica hideout that is possibly linked to the terror suspect Giorgos Petrakakos, in addition to the nine vehicles found earlier, the Greek Police reported on Wednesday. Counter-terrorism squad officers examining the house have seen six cars, a truck and two motorcycles, as well as collections of weapons and ammunition, in the interior of the house and two very large basements. They have not been able to inspect them in detail, however, since the police forensics service is currently inside the house conducting a search for fingerprints and DNA evidence. Once the search for forensic evidence is complete and they are free to enter, they will be able to inspect the sacks containing the weapons and ammunition in order to determine their exact number and type. According to a senior police officer, the evidence points to the arms cache of a terrorist organisation and police must now determine whether there are any links between the persons now held by the authorities, as well as whether these arms and vehicles have been used in terrorist or criminal actions. Police said the Marathon hideout was leased a year earlier by someone using fake documents, while all evidence indicates that this person was a member of the so-called 'Distomo robbers' gang, of which the recently arrested terror suspect Giorgos Petrakakos was also a member. The counter-terrorism squad was led to the hideout by following leads related to terrorist hits uncovered before Petrakakos' arrest.
