The arms were found at a hideout in San Javier, a neighborhood in the dangerous Comuna 13 district of the city, the brigade said.
Two grenades were found along with the ammunition, which was mostly for 7.62 mm weapons.
The ammunition and explosives belonged “to the criminal gangs that feed off drug trafficking in the city of Medellin,” the capital of Antioquia province, the army said, without identifying the gang that owned the materiel.
The ammunition and explosives were intended for the cells of armed drug traffickers that operate in the area, the army said, adding that the materiel may have been intended for “sabotage and terrorist attacks” linked to the March 14 legislative elections.
