Cops Continue Search for Stolen Firearms

Head of the Manchester Police, Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron Powell says her team has intensified its investigation into the theft of six firearms and a large quantity of ammunition in the parish.

When the story was first aired last week, the Police Corporate Communications Unit indicated that three pistols were stolen along with 17 rounds of ammunition and jewellery.

But Superintendent Cameron Powell says the numbers are wrong.

The guns were stolen on October 4 from the home of a licensed firearm holder in Inglewood, Manchester.

Police say the businessman and his common law wife were off the island and had left their house in the care of a friend.

Robbers broke through the back door of the house and stole the weapons from a safe.

Superintendent Powell says she’s concerned about the increasing theft of licensed firearms in the parish.
