A 26-year-old Porter of Festival City, North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, was in the wee hours of this morning arrested by Police after being found with an illegal firearm outside of the Stink & Dutty Jouvert, which was held at the National Park.

The Guyana Police Force (GPF) said that at about 02:30h, a police rank on duty at the show observed two males fighting.

This prompted the rank to approach them, after which he immediately observed a handgun that fell from the pants waist of one of the men.

The rank picked up the firearm and then held on to the man it fell from. The gun was examined, and it was observed to be a .32 pistol with one .32 live ammunition.

He was told of the offence committed and arrested. He was then escorted to Alberttown Police Station and placed into custody.

Meanwhile, the GPF revealed that Police seized a quantity of scissors, knives, and improvised weapons by patrons prior to entry.
