Man flees police ranks leaving gun behind


A man on Wednesday escaped arrest but left behind a gun as he fled two police corporals at the Meadow Bank Wharf, Georgetown.

The Guyana Police Force (GPF) reported that the cops were conducting a foot patrol operation in the vicinity of the fourth fish vending stall. During the operation, a man wearing a black hoodie was observed acting in a suspicious manner.

Upon seeing the police, the man ran towards a clump of bushes in a northern direction and made good his escape.

The ranks observed that the man had dropped something and upon giving chase and checking, one of the Corporals found a .32 revolver without serial number.

The firearm which had no ammunition, was examined, photographed and taken to the Ruimveldt Police Station. It was marked, sealed and lodged with the Subordinate Officer in charge to be taken to the Ballistics Department.

The police have launched an investigation.
