According to the information available to officers, the company intended to ship the holders abroad.

The service said in a press release that six special holders designated for Russian MI-171 military helicopters had been found during a search in a warehouse of an unspecified Kaunas company on May 27. The company engaged in aviation equipment maintenance and trade delivered the holders from Estonia.

Customs officers suspected that the holders could quality as weapons and had been imported without the required authorizations issued by the Police Department.

Police experts confirmed to customs officers that those devices were designated for the launch of aviation bombs and that trade in such arms was prohibited.

The service also said in its press release that holders would be handed over for additional examination.
