Two men are now in Police custody following the discovery of a 12-gauge shotgun at 79km Unamco Road, Upper Berbice River, Region 10, on Monday.
The initial report stated that the discovery was made via an intelligence-led operation by ranks attached to the Kwakwani Police Station.
However, acting on information received, the ranks conducted a search exercise on the camp of Saif Bacchus in the presence of a 21-year-old labourer of Rosignol, West Coast Berbice, and a 30-year-old operator of Upper Berbice River.
The 12-gauge shotgun was reportedly found about five feet away from a makeshift tent, wrapped in black plastic.
When questioned, the labourer told the Police that he found the shotgun in the backdam and gave it to the operator to hide.
They were told of the offence committed, cautioned, arrested and escorted to the Kwakwani Police Station pending charges.
