Female Coast Guard officer among several held in Diego Martin


    A female Coast Guard officer is among several persons held by police in Diego Martin yesterday.

    Around 11am, officers went to a house at Salandy Gardens, Bagatelle Road, Diego Martin after reports of loud explosions in the area.

    There, they found six rounds of ammunition and proceeded to arrest the 32-year-old woman and three other male occupants of the home.

    The officers then went to another house in the same area where they arrested a 25-year-old man after finding a Glock 19 pistol containing 11 rounds of ammunition.

    The officers finally went to a bamboo patch in the same area, where they discovered a TM-15 SIG Rifle containing 25 rounds of ammunition, along with camouflage and tactical attire.

    Inquiries into this find are ongoing.
