Two men were detained in Aranguez on Thursday night, after they were found in possession of an air rifle and a pistol with seven rounds of ammunition.
The discovery was made at a house at Mahelal Street, Aranguez.
Members of the Duncan Street Inter Agency Task Force co-ordinated by Insp Branch and led by Sgt Taylor, Cpls Thomas and Melville went to the home at around 7.30 pm following a tip-off.
Police questioned a 59-year-old man, who then led officers to a bedroom and handed over an air rifle, which he said he did not have a permit for.
Police then searched another bedroom of the house used by the man’s son and found a Llama pistol with seven rounds of ammunition.
The man said he did not know anything about that. However, his son came home while he was being questioned and the son admitted the pistol belonged to him.
Both men were arrested.
