During an anti-crime exercise conducted between 10 am and 2 pm, officers went to an unoccupied downstairs apartment of a two-storey building at Quarry Road, Mount Carmel in Valencia.
The apartment, which was unfurnished except for a built-in wardrobe, was searched. One AR rifle fitted with a magazine containing 30 rounds of 5.56 ammunition along with a plastic bag containing 15 rounds of 5.56 ammunition, were discovered in a speaker box.
The exercise was supervised by Insp Taylor and coordinated by Snr Supt Subero and ASP Ramesar. It also included Ag Sgt Mohammed, Cpl Praimdass, and PCs Thompson, Smith, and Andrews.
