A Swedish woman has been arrested after she was caught trying to smuggle guns, grenades, and drugs across the Serbian border and into Hungary. She was believed to be heading home to southern Sweden.
"This is a woman in her mid-thirties who lives in southern Sweden," the foreign ministry confirmed to the Nyheter24 news site. "The embassy is following the case."
The woman was caught with the objects inside her luggage as the bus she was travelling on was crossing the border into Hungary. The objects were hidden inside a secret compartment inside one of her bags.
There, she had stored three pistols, three hand grenades, several types of ammunition, silencers, and more than 3,000 tablets.
The woman remains in the town of Subotica awaiting interrogation.
