Tyrese David, a 22-year-old construction worker from Covent Garden, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was arrested with an illegal gun on Friday night. 

At the time of the arrest, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) said that ranks were on mobile patrol in the vicinity of Back Street, Covent Garden, when they observed a male running into a shop.

The ranks chased and apprehended the individual (David). They searched his person, and he was found to be in possession of an illegal .38 Revolver with the serial number filed off.

The suspect was informed of the offence committed, cautioned, and responded, “Sir is me own. I got it from the interior.”

The ranks took possession of the firearm, arrested David, and transported him to the Providence Police Station, where he was placed into custody and is slated to be charged.
