Gun probe after Malaga arrest
POLICE are examining a revolver they recovered after arresting an Irishman in a Costa del Sol neighbourhood.
The 44-year-old man was detained after allegedly trying to dispose of the weapon in a rundown part of Malaga when he spotted officers assisting a man nearby. Detectives are now checking firearms' databases across the country to see if they can link the gun to any crimes.
