    International Arms Smuggler Caught Due to Faulty Navigation

    A Colombian national posing as a Spanish citizen was apprehended at the Grzechotki border crossing on July 1st. The man, using counterfeit documents, was revealed to be a wanted arms smuggler sought by Spanish authorities.

    Arriving at the Polish border in a Volkswagen with Dutch plates, he claimed his navigation system directed him there. However, border officials found his identity card and other documents to be forgeries. A deeper investigation revealed his true identity and his fugitive status since 2011 for arms smuggling and kidnapping.

    Despite denying the charges and refusing voluntary legal responsibility, the court in Braniewo ordered his detention for three months. Border Guard officials at Grzechotki continue to investigate the case.
