Stash of ammunition found in a container

By M.ZOLJARGAL

Only two entities in Mongolia currently are permitted to import firearms and ammunition. However, several cases of illegal smuggling and importation of firearms were reported lately.

Customs officers in Ulaanbaatar found seven boxes of ammunition while inspecting a container delivering second-hand clothes from the U.S. The authorities found 350 pieces of ammunition in total.

Owner of the container said that he had no knowledge of the ammunitions in the container and that he doesn’t need any firearm and bullet. Bayangol District Police Department is currently investigating the case.
