Police are now in possession of two assault rifles and ammunition whose smuggling into the island was thwarted yesterday.
A statement today from police public relations officer Inspector David Welch stated: “In the morning of Wednesday, October 9, 2013, police intercepted two assault rifles and three magazines hidden inside the shell of a 40-inch television within a box.
“This operation was conducted at a courier service located in Christ Church. Investigations are currently ongoing into this find,” the statement said.
