Cops round up two more gun suspects in WB

| 12/09/2013

(CNS): Two West Bay men have been arrested and an unlicensed firearm recovered following a police operation in in the district late last night. An RCIPS spokesperson said Thursday that the two men, aged 26 and 28 years, were arrested in Birch Tree Hill Road on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm on Wednesday 11 September and a handgun was also recovered during the police operation. The men are currently in police custody as enquires in the case continue. The arrest follows that of a 20-year-old man yesterday in connection with a shooting which occurred last month in Powell Smith Drive off Town Hall Road.

Although police had recently presided over a fall in gun related crime, the shooting on 24 August is one of several other reported crimes recently involving guns, including a number of ‘doorstep’ robberies and home invasions. A victim was shot in the arm by would- be robbers in the early hours of this past Saturday morning on Perditha Lane off Frank Sound Road as he returned home from his business. Some ten people were robbed at gunpoint in Savannah recently when masked gun men struck at a home as a group of guests were about to leave a social gathering.

The RCIPS is appealing to anyone who may have information on these or any other crime to report to call 800-TIPS (8477) or the police crime line 949-7777.
