Two men have been arrested and are assisting the Pinto Police with their investigations into robberies in the district and other related offences.

Official police reports are that the men were arrested during a police exercise by officers from the Pinto Police Post, on Saturday 17th October 2020.

Based on information reportedly received from one of the suspects, the officers were directed to a bushy area off Hoyte Avenue where the suspect pointed out the hiding place of a revolver containing four rounds of ammunition.

The items were retrieved and taken to the police post for processing.

The two men—one from Sandstone Extension, Demerara Road in Wallerfield, and the other from Ackbaralli Trace, Malabar—currently are assisting the police with several reports of robberies and other offences in the Pinto district.

Enquiries continue.
