The Hoofddorp district of Bornholm was the scene of a major police action tonight, in which four people were arrested. The reason was a report about a firearm that had been seen by a witness on the street.
An arrest team from the Special Interventions Service (DSI) and a police helicopter were deployed to arrest the fourth suspect, who was staying in a house on Engelsholm. The street was also cordoned off.
After the necessary preparations, during which a police helicopter circled above their residence for a long time to the surprise of Hoofddorp residents, the arrest team raided the house in Engelsholm. The suspect was eventually overpowered and arrested.
