In Mineralnye Vody, Stavropol Territory, North Caucasus, 13 Makarov pistols with silencers have been confiscated from two residents of Chechnya.

The detained were to have delivered the arms to Moscow, Colonel of the Police Armen Arakelyan, head of the anti-organised crime squad of Mineralnye Vody, told RIA Novosti on Saturday. Mineralnye Vody is a large health resort in the North Caucasus.

The luggage carried by the detained was also found to contain a large number of rounds of ammunition, a revolver, and a Parabellum pistol.
