Couple in custody over illegal gun, ammo

A husband and wife were on Monday arrested after an unlicensed firearm and several rounds of matching ammunition were found on their premises.
Based on reports received, the couple, aged 24 and 25 of East La Penitence, Georgetown, was at home when Police showed up and requested to conduct a search. During the search, the .32 Taurus pistol and three live rounds of matching ammunition were found hidden in an oven.
As such, the couple was told of the offence committed, cautioned and arrested. They are expected to make their court appearance before the end of the week.
Back in December 2019, a Patentia, West Bank Demerara (WBD) couple was busted by Police with a gun, matching ammunition and a quantity of cannabis.
It was reported that based on intelligence received, Police swooped down on the couple’s Patentia Squatting Area, popularly known as “Skull City”, home.
During the search, the officers unearthed the unlicensed pistol with twelve live rounds in a magazine and 325 grams of cannabis packaged in small-sized Ziploc bags. They were subsequently charged and remanded to prison.
