The officers overpowered an armed man who was sentenced to 12 years in prison for assault with a weapon – as it turned out, gas – in his hand and illegal possession of a weapon. The court ordered him to be arrested for three months.

His father will be charged with illegal possession of a firearm

The police determined that the gas pistol used during the robbery did not belong to the 29-year-old, but to his father. The 57-year-old was the owner of the gun, despite the fact that – according to the police – he did not have a permit to do so.

Illegal ammunition was also found in his apartment. The 57-year-old is under police surveillance. For illegal possession of weapons and ammunition, he faces up to eight years in prison, a spokeswoman for the Silesian police said.
