Keen observation by police officers on mobile patrol lead to the arrest of six persons and the discovery and seizure of two pistols (one an imitation, the other a Glock pistol), as well as five rounds of 9 mm ammunition and  two masks.

Police reported that around 7:30 pm on Monday, officers were on mobile patrol along Mausica Lands when, upon reaching the vicinity of Alenore Gardens, they observed a silver Nissan AD Wagon with six occupants proceeding east out of Alenore Gardens.

The police stopped the vehicle and ordered the six occupants out of the vehicle, and conducted a search which led to the weapons, ammunition and masks being found.

The men were arrested, and the guns, ammunition and masks seized and taken by police to the Arima Police Station. The arrested men are helping police investigators with their inquiries.

The party of police officers in the exercise included PCs Thomas, Lajennnese, and Persad.
