Five youths arrested here this week while loading a truck with two orates of rifles, machineguns and pistols, were released yesterday in $500 bail each and will receive a hearing on Dec. 9. The police suspect that the arms were destined for Israel, but the youths, who said that they are interested in the Israeli cause, denied knowing that the crates contained arms.
