The arrest was made by officers attached to the Rapid Response Unit (RRU).
A release from the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) said “… a party of RRU personnel … [was] on mobile patrol duty about the Georgetown District when they observed the accused with a grey Gucci bag at a restaurant and bar in the area.
“The officers became suspicious and requested a search which led to the discovery of the firearm and the ammunition.”
