    Kecman was arrested alongside a Svetozar Zivkovic, a 59-year old Swedish national and friend to the Instagram influencer, as part of a single operation. 

    The Police discovered a much larger arsenal in Kecman's possession, in Bajmok, a village near the city of Subotica.

    The Swedish citizen was found in possession of 11 Kalashnikov rifles, 11 converted pistols, 10 silencers, and a mountain of of ammunition, according to the Serbian Ministry of Interior. 

    Reports claim that local authorities suspect the pair are involved in criminal organisations and fellow members are concerned that the singer may provide incriminating information about her alleged criminal associates while in custody, potentially resulting in further arrests. 

    According to an anonymous source "Kecman is worried about her arrest. She cries all the time and is very scared of prison" while "evidence indicates that the couple was keeping them for someone else."

    One of the rifles was covered in a flammable liquid called trick, often used by criminals to dispose of the guns quickly, thus getting rid of evidence.

    The police are determined to find the origins of the arsenal and where they were destined.

    The Montenegrin newspaper Borba claims that the weapons were meant for the Skaljar Clan (Slaughter Clan), a violent organised crime group based in Kotor, Montenegro. The Skaljar Klan are reportedly in a state of warfare with another organisation called the Kavac Klan after a 200kg cocaine heist in 2014 in Valencia, Spain.

    According to the Bosnian website, Telegraf, both groups are involved in the trafficking of drugs into and throughout Western Europe as well as illegal possession of firearms, money laundering and corruption.
