Why Worry About Weapons Being Banned when you can Just Steal Them?

Near Lyon:

A local athletic track is being investigated into the theft of 28 kilos of semtex found this weekend at the civilian arsenal at Corbas, a suburb of Lyon.

The police are trying now to make the link between this theft and a Sunday brush fire in the neighbouring area of Saint-Fons, where six detonators stolen and two grenades without fuses dating from the Second World War disappeared from their inventory, but were found by firefighters. Located less than five minutes drive from Fort Corbas, the overgrown former landfill is suspected to have served as a place to abandoning or field test equipment for budding terrorists. The discovery of the semtex has not yet led to any arrests.
