GRENADES, submachine guns and detonators have been seized by police in Spain from a stolen UK-registered car.
The weapons were found in an abandoned Volkswagen Golf, which was towed from a quiet street in the expat area of Benahavis.
UK authorities had notified Spanish cops that the vehicle was stolen and asked them to monitor it, but no one approached the car.
When police opened up the motor in the pound they found a loaded pistol in the glovebox, a rucksack containing two submachine guns, four boxes of ammunition, two hand grenades and two explosives detonators in the boot.
Spanish police confirmed that an investigation is ongoing.
It comes as Benahavis saw a bomb attack in October, when explosives were detonated outside the house of the owner of a car wash.
A simultaneous blast also destroyed the car wash in Marbella, where one person was arrested, while two more were held in Malmo, Sweden.
