Three men aged 22 to 37 years were arrested in an armed police raid in Sande in Vestfold on Sunday afternoon. One of the men walked around naked and armed, another was wearing a national guard uniform.

– Police first received a message from a person who observed a soaked naked man with a two-handed weapon in hand on the way from the E18 to Sande center.
We therefore armed ourselves and launched a major crackdown, said operations manager Erik Gunnerød in Southern Buskerud Police to the newspaper VG.
Seven police patrols and a police helicopter were involved in the action.
The men had filmed the incident and sent it directly to private groups on Facebook. In one of the videos a man goes out onto the road naked with a weapon, in another an arrest is shown.
– We have a national guard exercise here. We stop cars to check registration papers and driver’s license. We arrange this here. So it will be fun.
Here comes a car, says the man in HV uniforms in one of the videos.
In connection with the action was county road 319 cordoned off. The three involved had a haunt in a caravan at Hanekleiva stated the Police.
