A VENEZUELAN police service pistol was among the two guns found between Sunday night and yesterday morning during a police raid at Production Avenue, Sea Lots.

No-one was arrested, but investigators said that they have contacted the Venezuelan Embassy as well as Interpol (International Police) as they believe that Sea Lots fishermen make regular trips to Venezuela to bring in guns and narcotics.

The police exercise, which began shortly after 11 p.m. and ended at 3 a.m., was led by Insp Sahadeo Singh of the Besson Street CID. His team included Cpls Thompson and Jodha.

Armed with information, officers went to a house that they had under surveillance for approximately a week and found the two Austrian-made Glocks.

One of the guns uses .40 Smith and Wesson ammunition while the other uses standard .9 mm ammunition.

The .9 mm Glock had stencilled on its side, POLICARACAS.

Officers also found 34 rounds of ammunition.

Investigations are continuing.
