Four AK 47 magazines, spent shells found in Albouystown house

At about 1930h. last night, police ranks conducted a search on a house at James and Victoria streets, Albouystown, during which four AK 47 magazines and a quantity of spent shells of various calibre ammunition were found.

In a statement today, police said that two men have been arrested and are in police custody assisting with the investigations.

Source say that the finding of the AK 47 magazines is particularly troubling as it harks backs to a period when 30 of the weapons were stolen from the Guyana Defence Force and used in a crime spree that followed. Thirty AK-47s along with five pistols vanished from the GDF’s armoury at the Camp Ayanganna in February 2006. Around 20 of these have since been recovered. During the crime spree several gangs were in operation.
