Police officers found five items resembling weapons and ammunition in one of the apartments in the center of Kielce. The officers were called to a domestic dispute. A drunk 68-year-old man opened the door for them. If it is confirmed that the items found are weapons, the man will face trial for illegal possession.
Kielce police officers were called on Wednesday morning to one of the apartments in the city center, where – according to the report – a brawl was to take place. The door was opened by a man from whom the officers immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol. It turned out, however, that a fight and alcohol were the least of the Kielce inhabitants’ worries.
