A Tiger Bay, Georgetown, woman yesterday led detectives to a quantity of live ammunition,
believed to be AK-47 rounds and a number of spent shells that were stored by her partner in a latrine located at the back of their Lot 7 New Market Street home.
Police have subsequently arrested the man in question and are trying to locate another individual, who along with the Tiger Bay resident allegedly hid the ammunition. The rounds were stored in a box. The discovery was made at around 15:50 hrs.
Kaieteur News understands that the ammunition was taken to the latrine and hidden at the location two nights ago.
Police are now trying to determine whether the ammunition found yesterday is linked to Tuesday night’s robbery on America Street when a number of money changers were robbed by at least 10 men on CG motorcycles.
According to reports, a woman and her partner were having marital problems and the police were called to the location when the man started to assault her.
When the police arrived, the woman led them to the latrine where the high-powered live rounds and spent shells were stored.
At the location yesterday, detectives were seen searching the area. The man, who was subsequently taken into custody, was heard shouting, “This is a set-up. They set me up; I don’t know anything about that.”
Investigations are ongoing.
