Central cops hold 2 men, seize guns, ammo and marijuana trees during exercise

Exercises held in the Central, Northern and North Eastern Divisions yesterday resulted in the arrest of two persons, the seizure of two guns along with a quantity of ammunition and 11 marijuana trees.

The execution of a search warrant at a home of a 22-year-old man in Pinto, Arima yesterday led to the alleged seizure of one Taurus nine-millimetre pistol with 14 rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition. The man was arrested and taken to the Pinto Police Post.

Three rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition were also allegedly found during the execution of a search warrant at a residence on Bye Pass Road, Arima yesterday. A 24-year-old man was held and is assisting police with various shooting and wounding investigations in the area.

An exercise conducted in Freeport yesterday between the hours of 3 pm and 11 pm, based on information received, led officers to Tewarie Circular South, Freeport. There, about 150 feet off the roadway, in a bushy area, they allegedly found an assault rifle fitted with a magazine, wrapped in a grey vest.

Officers of the North Eastern Division, also acting on information received, proceeded to Garden Road, Aranguez during an exercise conducted between 2 pm and 8:30 pm yesterday. They allegedly found 11 fully grown marijuana trees barricaded by a black-coloured tarpaulin on land used for gardening.
Enquiries into these incidents are ongoing.
