Two held for possession of Rossi revolver, ammunition

Two men are currently in police custody for possession of a firearm and ammunition, after being arrested during an anti-crime exercise in the La Romaine district earlier this morning.

The two men, ages 35 and 29, of La Brea and Embacadere respectively, were arrested around 12:10 am on Monday 14th May, 2018, by officers of the San Fernando Police Station, along Gulf View Link Road, La Romaine.

During the exercise, officers had cause to stop and search a burgundy Nissan Cefiro motor vehicle with two male occupants.

The search resulted in one Rossi revolver loaded with four rounds of .38mm ammunition, one bullet casing and five grammes of marijuana being discovered.

The men were subsequently arrested in connection with the find.

The exercise, supervised by Cpl Kelly Ramnarine, took place between 10 pm on Sunday 13th May, 2018 and 2 am on Monday 14th May, 2018.
