Guns, ammo, drugs seized 18 arrested

Cecily Asson Saturday, July 15 2017

POLICE acting on a tip-off, entered an abandoned, burnt-out HDC apartment building at Cassia Avenue in Pleasantville where they recovered an AK 47 assault rifle and several rounds of ammunition on Thursday.

The building, located just off the San Fernando By-Pass, has been an eyesore for many years in the community. According to a police report, the assault rifle was one of three guns seized in the southern division during a 24 hour, anti-crime exercise which started on Wednesday night.

A party of officers led by ASP Mohammed, Head of San Fernando CID Insp Don Gajadhar, Sgt Parasram, Sgt Ramroop, Sgt Ifill and others also recovered two .38 revolvers, one in George Street, La Romaine and the other in Marabella.

Police seized several packets of cocaine and marijuana. During the exercise, 18 people were detained in connection with various offences including narcotics possession, break-ins and larceny.

During a joint police/army operation in the Central Division, officers seized an Uzi sub-machine gun along with 50 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition and 27 rounds of 9 mm ammunition in a swampy area off London Street in Longdenville.

The officers also found six kilos of compressed marijuana with a street value of $600,000. No arrest was made.
