Scrap dealer

Some news from Liberia.

MONROVIA (Reuters) - Authorities in Liberia said on Wednesday a large ammunition cache they thought they had discovered while investigating a possible coup plot was in fact scrap metal destined for recycling.

The supposed cache was discovered during a raid on Sunday on an unfinished building in a town on the main road to Ivory Coast, fuelling speculation it was linked to an alleged scheme to smuggle weapons into the country.

Liberian police and soldiers from the U.N. peacekeeping force carried out the raid, which police officials said at the time had unearthed mostly new AK-47 machinegun ammunition.

"The fact of the matter is those items were just empty shells," Liberia's presidential press secretary Cyrus Badio told Reuters. "The person in question is a scrap dealer."

Gbargna, where the discovery was made, served as a headquarters of the main rebel group during a 14-year on-off civil war in Liberia, which ended in 2003.
You would hope police and soldiers would know what were weapons(arms) and what weren't. That's hoping they weren't trained in America by this agency, if they were anything is possible.(Sarcastic laughter time)
