GSU uncovers AK-47, machine gun and ammo

The Gang Suppression Unit came under fire recently for the use of excessive force on Taylor’s Alley residents. The Unit went quiet and there was a resurgence of violence. This morning, the GSU was back on the streets. In an operation in the Mayflower Street area, known to be the base of the Ghost Town Crips, the unit made a major find of high powered weapons and ammo. Between eight-thirty and ten, behind the Steadfast Masonic Lodge at the corner of Lakeview and Vernon Streets, the GSU found a AK-forty seven automatic rifle wrapped in a cloth and concealed in a black garbage bag. A few feet away under a tree, they found a black knapsack with fifty-five rounds of ammunition used in M-sixteen rifles and gauge cartridges.  A student’s ID card, from an Orange Walk High School, was also found in the knapsack. Hours later the GSU returned to the site behind the Masonic Lodge. In the same bushy area in garbage bags, they found a sub machine gun, a twelve gauge Mossenberg riot pump action shotgun, twenty-three cartridges, twenty-seven rounds of assorted ammunition. In between the searches, the GSU zeroed in on Kareem Gentle at his Mayflower Street address where Lucious Meyers was also present. In a search of premises, the GSU fished out a black plastic bag containing a glock nine millimeter magazine with ammo. In another bag they found more ammunition and six military type expended flares.  Gentle and Myers were arrested and charged for kept firearm and ammunition without having a gun.
