Spanish National Police arrested the suspect in the village of Casarrubios del Monte for possession, production and sales of illegal weapons, authorities reported on Tuesday.

Officers at the suspect’s house found over 200 illegal weapons, including flick knives, daggers, knuckledusters, pepper sprays and tasers camouflaged as mobile phones, with the latter being the biggest weapons online.

Police did not reveal the suspect's age but did report that he was under 18.

According to their statement, the minor manufactured his own knuckledusters using various moulds.

His selection of knives also had SS and Nazi inscriptions on them.

Spanish police believe the suspect sold most of his weapons on a website he had set up, which the investigation team first came across in February.

The young man has continued in the tradition of Toledo’s weapon craftsmanship, as the medieval city is known as the sword and knife capital of Spain.

Spanish teen takes mum to court for confiscating his mobile phone

A 15-year-old in southern Spain denounced his mother for “mistreatment” after she confiscated his mobile phone in an attempt to make him study.

But a judge who heard the case at Court Number 1 in Almeria, came down firmly on the side of the mother declaring that “evidently” she was “well within her rights” and took “the correct action” as a responsible parent.

“She would not be a responsible mother if she allowed her son to be distracted by the mobile phone and fail to study,” said the court ruling from magistrate Luis Columna as seen by Europa Press.

He even went on to say that such an action was almost required by law. “Among the duties required to be undertaken by a parent, as outlined in the Civil Code, is that of being responsible for the education of one’s children, which is exactly what the accused did in this case, without taking it to unnecessary extremes”.
