Two arrested after found with ‘air guns’


The Guyana Police Force arrested two men separately within the last 24 hours after they were found with air guns.

At about 20:50hrs on Friday night, acting on information received, a Deputy Superintendent and a party of Police ranks went to Haslington/Enmore Front, East Coast Demerara, where they contacted a 37-year-old Wash Bay owner.

During a search an air gun was found inside a minibus at the Wash Bay.

“The Wash Bay owner was told of the suspicion, cautioned and claimed the said bus was brought to his wash bay by a man (name unknown) to wash. The man reportedly left the bus in his care and custody and went away,” police reported.

Meanwhile, at Grove, East Bank Demerara a 23-year-old construction worker was arrested after he was found with an air gun.

While on patrol at about 02:30hrs, police ranks observed the 23-year-old with a group of men; all walked off when they saw the ranks.

The Police observed the 23-year-old acting suspiciously and reportedly took the air gun from his waist and threw it in a nearby garbage bin.

A search was conducted in the garbage bin and the air gun was found.

He was arrested, escorted to the Golden Grove police station, and placed into custody.
