Cops seize three firearms, ammo
Tobago police officers have
taken several arms and ammuni-
tion off the streets following var-
ious exercises last week.

.38mm ammunition. No one was

After a third exercise last Mon-

icide Bureau acting on a tip-off

bushes. Acting on more informa-

also went to a bushy area at Mil-

With five firearms being recovered
in Tobago for 2017, Assistant Com-
missioner of Police for Tobago Garfield
Moore said the division was fulfilling
the national mandate of ridding com-
munities of illegal firearms.
"It is something where we are
depending, not solely but heavily,
on the public to share the informa-
tion with us, so that we could retrieve
those firearms, because we realise
that out of the five murders that we
have for this year, four were firearm
related. Also, in recent times we have
incidents where firearms were
involved, so we are very concerned
with the trend that is developing
now and we are hoping that we can
really retrieve some of those firearms
so that the general public can get
some sense of safety," Moore told
Tobago Today. (CTF)
