Guns found in Östermalm

A cache of guns has been found in a cellar in Stockholm's exclusive Östermalm district. The find was made following a tip from a member of the public.

Police received information at 11am on Tuesday that guns could be hidden in an Östermalm apartment. After observing the property for about four hours, officers forced their way in. The apartment was empty, but they found guns in the cellar.

Police spokeswoman Towe Hägg said an investigation into conspiracy to rob had been opened.
