An intelligence-led Police operation at around 14:05 h on Friday resulted in the arrest of three men and the recovery of an unlicensed shotgun and ammunition.

Reports are that ranks went to Johanna South, Black Bush Polder, Corentyne, Berbice, and saw two men standing next to a 212 motorcar bearing registration number PNN 3838.

A search was conducted on the motorcar, but nothing illegal was found. As a result, the ranks proceeded to a nearby yard, where they saw another male in a storeroom.

They searched the storeroom and found one single-barrel shotgun with no serial number and three 12-gauge cartridges. The Police took possession of the firearm, and the three men were arrested as the investigations continue.
