Just before 2:30AM today, Thursday, 16 November, officers were dispatched by the 9-1-1 Communications Centre to a report of a disturbance involving damage to property at a gas station off Walkers Road in George Town.
When the police arrived some of the individuals involved left the location in a white Honda Civic, the vehicle was subsequently stopped and searched and a loaded magazine was recovered. Whilst the vehicle was being searched the driver fled the location on foot; he is still wanted by the police for questioning.
The two passengers, a man aged 23 and a woman aged 36, both of George Town, were arrested on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm and damage to property. They remain in police custody.
The vehicle was later forensically examined and a handgun was recovered.
