Teen among three arrested after illegal gun found during Police operation


Three persons, including a 19-year-old, were arrested Wednesday night during a Police intel-led operation in Georgetown, which led to the discovery of an unlicensed 9mm pistol and two matching rounds of ammunition.

Detectives from the Alberttown Police Station were on mobile patrol at around 10:45hrs when they received “certain information”, Police Headquarters reported.

The ranks, acting on the information received, proceeded to Fifth Street Alberttown, where they intercepted a black Allion car bearing registration# HD 6172, which was parked on the northern side of the street.

Inside the car were three men: a 43-year-old taxi driver from Den Amstel; a 34-year-old unemployed resident of Timehri; and a 19-year-old unemployed resident of Rosemary Lane (Tiger Bay) in Georgetown.

Police searched the men and vehicle. A side bag that was around the neck of the 19-year-old was searched, and a black 9mm pistol along with two rounds of 9mm ammunition were found inside.

The 19-year-old was told of the offence committed and cautioned. All three occupants were arrested and escorted to the Alberttown Police Station, where they were placed in custody.

The firearm and ammunition were marked, placed into separate evidence bags, sealed, and lodged with the Station Sergeant at the Alberttown Police Station to be taken to the Ballistics Section for analysis.
