Weapons found at house used by bank robbers fail to provide clues

The weapons recovered during a police raid to arrest three bank robbers near Volos, central Greece, have not been used in criminal or terrorist activities, authorities said on Monday.

Spyros Christodoulou and Giorgios Tsironis were arrested during the raid but Spyros Dravilas was found dead. Police suspect he killed himself to avoid being caught.

Dravilas and Christodoulou were suspected of carrying out a 400,000-euro robbery last year. Tsironis is suspected of being a member of the so-called “Robbers in Black,” also linked to a number of armed robberies.

Police said that none of the weapons recovered from the house, including three Kalashnikov assault rifles, showed signs of having been used in incidents under investigation.
