Shotgun seized after tip-off; police thank public

Police are calling on citizens to continue to work with the organization in the fight against crime, as due to a ‘tip-off’ they were able to seize a shotgun yesterday. 

The find was made by officers of the Arima Municipal Task Force yesterday morning off Blanchisseuse Road in Arima. 

The officers, led by Cpl Roberts and Cpl Villarreal, were on patrol when they got information that a weapon had been stashed off the roadway. 

The officers acted on the intelligence, and in a bushy area, they found and seized the shotgun. 

No citizens were nearby at the time, and as a result no arrests were made. 

The officers thank the members of the public for the trust placed in them with the information, and called for the continued support.
