A shotgun, which proved to be stolen, was also found during the raid, along with ammunition. Homes of some of the members of Outlaws were searched as well, during which material for making explosives, an air handgun and drugs in sales packages were found, Fréttablaðið reports.

The action was carried out by the National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police’s Special Forces with the assistance of two sniffer dogs; one specialized in detecting explosives and the other drugs.
