GAZIANTEP – Doğan News Agency
Turkish police on Dec. 14 seized 47 pistol parts in cargo packages sent from the United States to the southeastern province of Gaziantep. Police have detained three people, including two of whom the cargo packages had been sent to.
The discovery was made when Gaziantep Şehitkamil district police teams, based on their intelligence, searched suspicious cargo packages coming from the U.S. and found the pistol parts sent to two people, who remain anonymous.
This led them to carry out a search of the houses of the two suspects, as well as a third person who also remains unidentified, where they seized two unlicensed pistols and five cartridge clips.
