Bust in Sparta

Vague details, as often:

Two local men were arrested on antiquities smuggling charges on Monday in the southern Peloponnese town of Sparta, after authorities discovered a cache of particular valuable objects in the pair’s possession, including a bronze Kouros-like statuette.    Four ancient coins and precious stone weighing in at more than 500 grams were also confiscated.    Additionally, handguns, ammunition and precision scales were uncovered during a search of the men’s residences.
