4

Six people are arrested and in police custody, after they were found in possession of two firearms and a quantity of ammunition.

On Tuesday 4th February, a team of police officers went to the village of Swetes and carried out a search on a house occupied by six people. During the search, police found one .38 revolver and one .25 pistol, along with a quantity of ammunition. The illegal weapons and ammunition were seized and taken to the police station, where further investigations are currently ongoing into the matter.

Meanwhile, Acting Commissioner Rodney said he is pleased with the recent successes so far; which are as a result of several crime-fighting strategies that have been implemented for the year going forward. For the year, a total of six illegal firearms and almost 60 rounds of ammunition have been removed from off the streets by police.

Rodney is further appealing to residence of Antigua and Barbuda to continue support and cooperate with the police, as they work together to make Antigua and Barbuda safer.

  1. It’s time to get all of these illegal guns and ammunition off the streets and out of the country. it’s a New Antigua we trying to build here, a non-violent and just society. The penalties for possession of illegal guns must be increased significantly, including hard time in 1735. Some people say “Guns don’t kill people”. Maybe so, but PEOPLE WITH GUNS KILL PEOPLE.

    The thugs need to put away. Congratulations to the police for all they do to make this a safe society.

  2. Those same guns an ammunition they claim to confiscate from people are going right back on the streets…its jus a cycle nothing’s gonna change

  3. It is time for the govt to lock up these persons and throw away the key when they are found with unlicensed fire arms.. Clearly, these persons have BAD INTENTIONS why they are in possession of the items…… They also tend to be protecting an interest, which contravenes the law….. Obviously these persons are a menace to society.
