Greece: arrest of metal-detecting antiquities looter in Sithonia, Halkidiki

Greek police arrested a 25-year-old man as an antiquities looter (αρχαιοκάπηλος); they arrested him on suspicion of looting antiquities (and thereby violating the Law on Antiquities and Cultural Heritage). They found 53 small artefacts of various designs and shapes, 45 ancient coins (of various sizes and images, 1 of silver, 44 of other metals) and a metal detector in his home in Sithonia, Halkidiki. There are no more details yet.
