S.P.U. Raid Turns Up Firearms and Marijuana

The Special Patrol Unit conducted an operation in the Saint Martin de Porres neighborhood on Monday night which yielded a quantity of marijuana, as well as a cache of weapons.  Seven pounds of cannabis, packed tightly in three parcels, were retrieved from a property on Carnation Street.  The raid was led by Assistant Superintendent Aaron Gamboa and took place shortly before eight p.m.  It also turned up three firearms, including a pair of revolvers and a point twenty-two pistol.  In Corozal Town on Monday, S.P.U. personnel were also tipped off about a stash house.  Following up on that lead, they visited an abandoned cement structure where a search of the property led to the discovery of a grey plastic bag under a pile of rocks.  Inside the bag was a black and silver Jericho brand pistol.  A magazine found inside the weapon contained six, nine millimeter rounds.  The firearm was turned over to Corozal Police.
