Police find Venezuelan-made ammo in Cedros

Twenty-five rounds of ammunition, which appear to have been manufactured in Venezuela, were found in Cedros.

The ammunition, which are .38mm special rounds, have the markings “CAVIM”.

Police believe that the markings stand for CAVIM (Compañía Anónima Venezolana de Industrias Militares) a Venezuelan state-owned firearms manufacturer.

No arrests were made in connection with the find.

According to police reports, at approximately 7:30 pm on Friday, Cpl Andrews, PC Loubon, and PC Durity, received intelligence which led them to Constance Estate in Icacos.

Approximately 25 feet off the roadway, in a bushy area, the officers found a piece of cloth.

Inside the cloth, they found the ammunition.

The ammo is expected to be sent for ballistic testing to determine if it can be linked to previous reports of criminal activities in the area.

PC Loubon is continuing inquiries.
