…dragnet led to the arrest of three others
More praise is being showered on the Berbice police for arresting four men and confiscating a gun that the men were carrying.
An alert policeman was able to intercept a car in which the four suspicious men were. They made an attempt to escape but one was captured. The others were nabbed even as they attempted to bribe cops to retrieve a gun.
According to reports, around 10:15 hrs on Tuesday a policeman was on patrol duty in the vicinity of Craig Street, Queenstown, Corriverton, when he noticed four known characters travelling in a grey motor car.
The vehicle was stopped and the men were ordered out for searches to be conducted. As the men exited, one man made a dash and threw away a Black Bag. The others also made a dash for it. The police retrieved the bag and was able to chase and capture one of the men. The bag was later checked and found to contain a .38 revolver.
The driver also drove the car away. The one man was over powered and taken to the Springlands Police station. He told investigators that he didn’t know the men and had only stopped the car for a lift.
Subsequently, according to information some known characters made contact with the cops to make an arrangement to retrieve the gun at a cost.
The arrangement was made and an agreement was struck.
As the characters turned up for the agreed deal, the three known characters were nabbed and taken into custody.
The driver and some others remain at large.
