A 38-year-old man of West Ruimveldt, Georgetown and a 20-year-old of Campbellville Housing Scheme, Georgetown, who attempted to evade law enforcement were on Thursday nabbed after the motor car in which they were
travelling crashed into a utility pole.
Based on reports received, a mobile patrol was in the Charlestown area when they observed the suspicious movement of a motor car bearing registration number PWW 149 and it was being driven by a “known character”, while another man was seated in the back seat .
As the patrol approached the vehicle in the vicinity of Russell and Howes Streets, Charlestown, the Police ranks signalled the driver to stop, but instead he
accelerated and subsequently crashed into a utility pole on Link Street.
The occupants were ordered to exit the vehicle during which the driver dropped a firearm, which was immediately retrieved and found to be a .38 Smith and Wesson Revolver with a live round in its chamber. As such, both men were arrested and are being grilled at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
