Police seize gun, ammo in Port-of-Spain

Port-of-Spain Division Task Force Officers seized a firearm and a quantity of ammunition during a search exercise this morning.

The pistol and 12 rounds of 45 calibre ammunition are currently being tracked by crime scene experts.

According to police reports, PoSDTF officers were executing search warrants exercises overnight at several locations reported to house firearms and ammunition when during the course of one of the operations, police received information about a group of men standing in the back of the Mango Rose Plannings, Port-of-Spain, acting suspiciously.

Upon reaching the location, police observed the group of men standing behind one of the buildings, with one of the men holding a firearm in his right hand.

The group however spotted the police vehicle and began running away from the location.

The armed man subsequently dropped the firearm before escaping through a track along Duke Street.

Investigations are ongoing.
