Police on Sunday at Linden arrested wanted man Khemraj “Rattie” Fredricks, minutes after he was discharged from the Mackenzie Hospital with a gunshot wound to the thigh.
The police said that Fredericks called ‘Rattie’, 32, of Nottinghamshire, Mackenzie, was washing his motor vehicle on his premises at around 19:00hrs yesterday when it is reported that he was shot to his right thigh.
The police say that Fredericks has been taken into custody as pending investigations into a drug-related matter.
Fredericks is said to be wanted in connection with the November, 2013 incident in which police seized several rounds of AK_47 ammunition during a raid at marijuana farm at 15 Miles, Ituni.
Police had stated that individuals on the marijuana farm had shot at them and they were forced to return fire.
A police release stated that the ranks destroyed ten fields comprising about 5,000 cannabis sativa plants, ranging in height from one foot and seven feet. Three camps were also unearthed during the raids.
Four men were arrested and 271 rounds of 7.62 x 39 ammunition, three AK47 rifle magazines and a telescopic night vision lens were recovered.
The ranks also detained four suspects, including an ex-policeman, but two other men managed to escape on motorcycles.
Kaieteur News was told that the ranks found sophisticated irrigating systems, which included pipes and sprinklers, on the farm. At the time, police were said to be looking for a Lindener known as ‘Rattie’, who is believed to be the gang’s ringleader.
According to police sources, one of the detained men told investigators that the alleged ringleader supplied them with firearms.
