Raid in Lariss home reveals stalagmites, weapons cache

A police raid on the home of an 82-year-old man in Larissa, central Greece, on Thursday revealed a large collection of unlicensed weapons as well as shards of stalagmites, which are considered antiquities and protected by law, police said on Friday.

Police were acting on a tip-off when they searched the property.

They confiscated a rifle and a sawed-off shotgun, two unarmed hand grenades, several knives and a bayonet, as well as six pieces of the rock formation, which will be sent to archaeologists for identification.
