Officers of the Port of Spain Division recovered one magazine containing 11 rounds of ammunition at Wharton Street, Laventille, yesterday.
Around 1pm, a party of officers from the Port of Spain Division Task Force, were conducting an anti-crime exercise when they observed a man holding a firearm. On spotting the officers, the man fled the area. The officers gave chase and were able to retrieve the magazine, which fell from the gun during the chase.
The suspect managed to evade the officers, however, an arrest is eminent. WPC Brown is continuing enquiries.
