The Guyana Police Force is praising co-operation between citizens and the Police Force and believes that cooperation has resulted in the seizure of a high-powered weapon and several matching rounds of ammunition in Linden.
Police investigators say they were able to retrieve a high powered AK 47 Rifle, two magazines and fifteen rounds of matching ammunition, fifteen .38 live rounds, thirty-nine 9mm live rounds and twenty-one .223 live rounds and a magazine.
According to the Police, “the actions of a dutiful citizen ought to be commended.”
According to reports, the 42-year-old citizen was engaged in the process of “house cleaning” when he saw a haversack behind a wardrobe in the Constabulary Compound, Linden house.
On closer examination, he discovered the firearm and ammunition, after which he rushed to the police station and informed ranks there.
A police party responded and took possession of the cache.
The house is owned by persons residing overseas and other persons were renting the home prior to the discovery.
