According to a statement from the Guyana Police Force (GPF), at around 05:15hrs today (January 6), ranks from the Sparendaam Police Station acted on information received and went to a two-bedroom house at Robert Road, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara.
A search was conducted in the first bedroom of the house, in the presence of the two occupants who were there at the time (a 30-year-old Labourer of the said address and a 23-year-old Plumber who resides next door).
During the search, the ranks found a 12 gauge double-barrel shotgun with no serial number and four (4) live matching cartridges.
The suspects were asked if they were licensed firearm holders but remained silent. They were then told of the offence committed, cautioned, and arrested.
A further search was conducted in the other bedroom in their presence, and a black plastic bag containing 286 transparent zip lock bags containing a quantity of suspected cannabis was also found.
The two suspects were told of the offence committed and were escorted to the Sparendaam Police Station along with the cannabis, which weighed and amounted to 580 grams.
The suspects were placed in custody pending further investigations and charges.
