Three youths from Chile have been arrested in Stockholm for serious felony and armed robbery reported DN on Monday.

The police believe they are in Sweden as part of a mafia gang, which specializes on robbery in suburban areas and pickpocketing on the streets in order to ship goods back to Chile for trade on the black market.

The police recently raided two flats in Rinkeby and found items worth up to one million crowns.

"It seems the gang has been active for at least a year and it's not just one set of people, but a group that constantly changes key members," said the Stockholm police.
