Duo charged for guns, ammo found in barrel shipped from Atlanta, Georgia

Two men have been charged in connection with the discovery of a large cache of firearms and ammunition recently discovered in a barrel at the wharf of the Guyana National Industrial Company Incorporated (GNIC) on Lombard Street, Georgetown.
They are: Reyon Williams, a 33-year-old driver of Guyhoc Park, Georgetown; and Andrew Fraser, a 56-year-old fibre technician of La Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara (WBD) and of Lot 1582 Larkspur Trail, Conyers, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Represented by legal counsel, these men appeared on Wednesday before Chief Magistrate (ag) Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and both pleaded not guilty to the joint charges of trafficking in firearms and ammunition.
