Two Arab Policeman Arrested for Weapons Theft and Trafficking


Two Arab police officers, brothers Suleiman Aweideh and Hamad Aweideh, along with several civilians, were arrested today (Monday) on charges of weapons theft and trafficking.  The suspects are also implicated in a break-in and weapons theft from the Maccabim Reut Border Guard Base which took place a few weeks ago.

The arrest was a result of an collaboratory undercover operation by the Police Investigations Department with investigators of the Central Unit of the Northern Police District. Once the men were taken into custody, a search was conducted of their homes which yielded weapons, 6,000 rifle bullets, grenades and other types of ammunition.
