Last Friday, Belmopan Police held an operation targeting the reported production of home made firearms. Their operation netted both ammunition and components used in the production of firearms. Criminals have found innovative ways to manufacture firearms using nails and bicycle parts. No one was in the area at the time and so the confiscated items were deposited as found property.

Later on during the week, Belmopan Police also found a firearm capable of firing 20 gauge cartridges behind a church in the San Martin Area. This firearm was also deposited as found property.

“We urge the general public to continue to report suspicious activities, so we can have safer communities,” says Howelll Gillett, Superintendent of Police and commander of the Belmopan Police Formation, in relation to these potentially lethal items.
