8 held with homemade shotgun


    Three Venezuelan women are among eight persons held with a firearm.

    Around 2:45pm yesterday, a team of officers went to Nelson Road, Freeport after receiving information regarding a suspicious vehicle.

    They stopped a white Nissan AD wagon, and a short while later they found an object that appeared to be a homemade shotgun.

    The vehicle’s eight occupants were taken into custody: the 42-year-old driver from Carapichaima, four male and three female Venezuelan nationals.
