A farmer of Enmore, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was arrested after he was found in possession of an illegal firearm and ammunition.
Police confirmed that the unlicensed pistol with ten live rounds of ammunition were found concealed at the premises of the 68-year-old Log Wood resident.
The discovery was made after Police received information. Just about a week ago, a welder was allegedly found with an illegal firearm and matching ammunition at the check-in counter at the Eugene F Correia International Airport, Ogle, ECD.
The man, identified as Terrence Baker, 32, of 3715 North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, on February 17, 2020, at the Trans Guyana check-in counter at the Eugene F Correia International Airport, had in his possession one .32 pistol without being the holder of a firearm license.
Barker was subsequently charged for the two offences and was released on $300,000 bail.
