Central Division officers arrested four persons and seized a firearm along with a quantity of ammunition, after they conducted investigations into a video that was circulating on social media.

Police reports indicate that the officers received a video clip, which appeared to show a group of persons at a bar, where one individual was brandishing what appeared to be a firearm. The Central Division team conducted covert intelligence-led investigations, then executed search warrants at the homes of four suspects. During the exercise, which was conducted between 4 am and 6 am today, one Glock Pistol, fitted with a magazine containing ten rounds of nine millimetre ammunition was seized.

Four suspects were arrested, while investigations into the video and the gun find are continuing. Charges are expected to be laid against one of the suspects.

In a separate incident, a 25-year-old man was arrested by police officers, after he was found in possession of a magazine containing six rounds of nine millimetre ammunition.

According to reports, around 3:30 pm yesterday, officers were proceeding along Railway Road, Enterprise, when they observed a man, at the back of a supermarket, with what appeared to be a firearm. The suspect attempted to evade the officers, only to be captured a short distance away. A search of the Cunupia man, led to the seizure of the magazine and ammunition.
