Handguns found by the public
Two handguns were handed into police by members of the public this week.
One was found in the water off South Shore on Wednesday and another was discovered in the St David’s area on Tuesday.
Police have launched an investigation to find out if the guns were connected to crimes.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes said: “Investigations have commenced into both incidents.
“The weapons have been processed and are being forensically examined to ascertain whether they have been used in the commission of crimes.”
Mr Weekes said that five firearms had been recovered since January.
He added: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank those members of the public who have assisted police with these recoveries.”
Anyone with information about firearms should contact police on 295-0011 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline on 800-8477.
