3,400 rounds of 9 and 22 mm rounds were scattered across the roadway of Kifissos Avenue in the Kolonos area, near the center of Athens.
Employees of the call center of the Police Service “Immediate Response” could not believe what they were hearing when a citizen who called them said that “Kifisu Avenue is full of cartridges”!
The police officers who arrived at the indicated place (opposite the famous department store in the Kolonos district) were speechless when they saw the incredible sight. Cartridges of caliber 9 and 22 mm were scattered along the road.
When they were collected, they counted 3400 pieces, most of which were scattered. But there were others that were in boxes (packaging). The authorities hope to establish the “origin and owner” of the cartridges bearing a specific serial number. At the same time, it is possible that someone, as a precaution, simply got rid of the ammunition in such a strange way.
The investigation is being conducted by the Kolonos District Police Department, and video footage from the scene has already been collected.
