The court accepted the request of the Prosecutor’s Office and decreed the pre-trial detention of the official of the Law of Guarantee of Traiguén, who was arrested at his home after weapons and ammunition were found in his possession.
This morning, the OS-7 of Carabineros raided the home of Juan Pierce, a judiciary official and son of a former inspector from the La Araucanía region, finding a war rifle, an arsenal of cartridges, ammunition, explosives and other weapons.
During the hearing, it was revealed that the overha review of the weapons made it possible to determine that all were in a position to be used for firing.
In addition, the official was formalized for violation of the Arms Control Act, for illegal possession of ammunition, weapons and explosive devices.
The Government reacted to this fact. “An official of the judiciary who presents or claims to be a member of that judiciary, and then discovers in his possession a lot of high-caliber ammunition and weaponry, I believe that the outcome of this investigation is going to be of high relevance to what is happening in the area,” said Interior Undersecretary Juan Francisco Galli.
