Loaded Firearm Recovered During Operation in George Town

Early Friday morning, 11 May, Joint Task Force officers (RCIPS & Customs), supported by officers of the RCIPS Tactical Firearms Unit, executed a search warrant at an address in the Bodden Road area of George Town. During the search, a loaded firearm (handgun) and two spear guns were recovered at the residence. A man and woman at the location were taken into custody; the woman has been bailed, and the man, age 54 of George Town, remains in custody on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm.

While executing the warrant, a pit bull aggressively ran towards one of the officers as if to attack. As it approached, the officer shot the dog once, wounding it. A veterinary doctor was immediately contacted to attend the location. The dog was taken by the doctor for medical treatment, but later had to be put down.

The matter has been referred to the office of the Ombudsman.
