A Brazilian registered helicopter which did not have permission to operate within Guyana has been seized by the Guyana Defence Force and the Police after it was found in the Rupununi region.
During an operation by the Police and the Military, a number of illegal mining sites were also found in the region being operated by Brazilian nationals. Two men were arrested at the site where the helicopter was found.
Residents in the community alerted the authorites to the presence of the illegal aircraft a the GDF and Police immediately sent in agents earlier today.
This is not the first time that Brazilian nationals have been found to be operating illegal gold mining sites in Guyana.
