Two persons have been arrested by the Police following the discovery of an AK-47 rifle and a .223 Ruger rifle.
The two high-powered weapons were found wrapped in plastic garbage bags and hidden in the corner of a trench on the West Coast of Demerara.
Ranks from the Major Crime Unit of the CID Headquarters made the discovery today. The two persons who were arrested are said to be assisting with the probe.
The discovery came just one day after two other high powered weapons were found at Meten-meer-zorg, West Coast Demerara. A businessman is under arrest in connection with that discovery.
A few weeks ago, the police arrested and charged three men after they were found in a Campbellville house with an AK-47 rifle and other guns and ammunition.
