In the seized hummer, the couple has written 'Zombie Response Team', and the vehicle also added a warning, 'infected people will be shot'. The hummer was also emblazoned with several hazard signs, and it clearly resembles the post-apocalyptic vehicles often depicted in Hollywood zombie attack films.

Local media reports suggested that the couple was arrested as they were travelling to their new summer house in Blekinge, Southern Sweden. In the checkpoint, Swedish customs officers were conducting a routine check, and they were surprised to see more than 20 weapons in their hummer.
