Ranks of the Guyana Police Force’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Special Patrol of Regional Division 4 ‘A’ have managed to recover two high-powered assault weapons and ammo during an operation on Thursday in Norton Street, Georgetown.

According to Police Headquarters, the CID ranks were on patrol duty within the vicinity of Norton Street when they observed a suspicious male holding a bulky green and orange haversack.

“As the man saw the Police ranks, he began to run through an alley in a northern direction, dropping the haversack,” the police said.

The ranks gave chase, but he escaped. However, they managed to retrieve the haversack and found what appeared to be an AK 47 Assault Rifle, an AR 15  Rifle, one ’round magazine’ containing 44 live 7.62 x 39 ammunition, and two AR 15  magazines, one containing eight live rounds of 5.56 x 45 ammunition.
