Two children aged 3 and 4, subject to search forms issued by the German authorities, were found overnight from Wednesday to Thursday in a vehicle which had just crossed the border with Italy in Menton (Alps -Maritimes), we learned from a police source.
Their father and a wife were also in the car, where an alarm gun and cartridges were discovered.
Placed in a home for the night
It was thanks to this "prohibited transport of category D weapons", which resulted in the two adults being placed in police custody, that the French police were able to realize that the two children were reported missing in their country of origin.
The German authorities immediately asked the French courts to separate them from their father.
They were therefore placed in a home for the night while awaiting instructions from this other country, specifies the same source.
