The police in Berbice are searching for a 15-year-old boy of Angoy’s Avenue, in New Amsterdam, after his mother led police to the discovery of a rifle that was hidden in an empty lot near their home.
The police have since lodged the rifle, which was outfitted with a silencer and telescopic lens.
The discovery of the weapon was made around 6 pm on Friday.
