Ranks of the Guyana Police Force’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Special Patrol of Regional Division 4 ‘A’ have managed to recover two high-powered assault weapons and ammunition during an operation on Thursday in Georgetown.

The CID ranks were on patrol duty within the vicinity of Norton Street, when they observed a man, who was acting in a “suspicious” manner, holding a bulky green and orange haversack in his right hand. Upon seeing the cops, he dropped the bag and fled towards an alley.

The ranks gave chase, but the suspect managed to escape. The haversack contained what appeared to be an AK 47 Assault Rifle, an AR 15 Rifle, one ’round magazine’ containing 44 live 7.62×39 ammunition, and two AR 15 magazines, one containing eight live rounds of 5.56×45 ammunition.

The said firearms, magazines and ammunition were dusted for fingerprints, then marked, sealed and lodged as investigations continue.
