Gun, ammo, ganja found in Gonzales

FIVE men were arrested on Tuesday afternoon after officers of the Port of Spain Operations Unit raided a house in Gonzales, Port of Spain, and seized one pistol and a quantity of ammunition and marijuana.

Police said that prior to Tuesday's exercise, they received information about illegal activities taking place at the house at Agostini Street, Gonzales; and, following days of surveillance, officers decided to raid the house around 5.30 p.m.

They found the five men and during their search of the premises they found one pistol, one magazine, seven rounds of 9 mm ammunition and 50 grammes of marijuana, along with a mask and a bulletproof vest.

One of the men was detained for marijuana possession, while the other four were being questioned by officers in relation to a number of robberies in the Port of Spain area.

Those detained are expected to appear in court this week. —GG
