TWO men, including one from Syria, were arrested for alleged possession of a gun and ammunition found in a container of ice.
On Tuesday, police reported that the men were held by Port-of-Spain Task Force officers in Belmont on Monday night.
Acting on information received, the officers proceeded to Norfolk Street, where they stopped a white Nissan Tiida with two male occupants.
The officers conducted a search of the vehicle and allegedly discovered a black and silver Taurus pistol in the vehicle’s trunk in a Styrofoam container covered with ice.
The men, 21 and 38, of Sixth Street, Barataria, and Mary Street, Aranguez, respectively, were taken to the Belmont Police Station where investigations are ongoing.
