Pomeroon boat operator busted with illegal gun, ammo

Police ranks in ‘F’ Division (Interior Locations) yesterday arrested an operator of a small vessel for unlawful possession of a small calibre firearm with one live round at Barakat Landing, Puruni River.

About 11:30 hours, the ranks whilst on a “river patrol” observed the boat captain acting in a suspicious manner upon seeing them, hence a search was conducted and an unlicensed .32 Pistol with a matching round was on his person.

The suspect, a 51 year old resident of Grant Pomeroon, Essequibo River, is being processed for court tomorrow.
