GT man arrested after car shot up and gun found

| 01/12/2023

(CNS): A 39-year-old man from George Town was arrested Monday over the possession of an illegal gun after a vehicle was shot up on Sunday night in Eastern Avenue, George Town. Police from the Firearm Response Unit attended an undisclosed residential location at about 9:30pm as a result of illegal activities involving a gun. After finding a vehicle that appeared to have damage consistent with gunshots, the armed officers carried out a search of the vehicle and the surrounding area, police said in a release.

It is not clear what, if anything, was found during that first search, but the RCIPS said that officers returned the next day to conduct an extensive daylight search of the grounds at the location. At that point, the police found spent cartridge cases and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun, which was seized.

There was no indication from the RCIPS release how the man was linked to the gun, though he was arrested for its possession. He has since been bailed as the investigation continues.
