Nine persons, including three women, have been arrested after police found a quantity of ammunition and ecstasy pills during a search of an apartment building at Rasville, Georgetown, yesterday morning.
The police, in a press statement, said that the search uncovered 16 live rounds of ammunition of varying calibres as well as 180 ecstasy pills.
The search was carried out a day after a high-powered weapon was found by the police in an apartment complex located at Turn Drive, East La Penitence, South Georgetown.
The police on Thursday afternoon carried out a search in the apartment during which they found the unlicensed .45 rifle, a live 9mm round and several ecstasy pills.
Caesar Gonsalves, who occupied the apartment, was taken into custody and has since been charged.
