Police officers attached to Richfond and Dennery police stations conducted an operation at Grande Ravine, Dennery on Saturday, during which drugs and a firearm were seized.

A search warrant was executed on a house in the area and a SLR semi automatic firearm with 12 rounds of ammunition was recovered, along with approximately 35 kilos of compressed marijuana.

Forty-three-year-old Nicholas Alexander also known as Rome, of Grande Ravine was arrested and charged for the offences of possession of an unlicensed firearm, possession of ammunition, possession of a controlled drug and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.

He appeared before the Second District Court in Dennery today.

  3. A wonderful candidate for “Enhanced Interrogation.” The Chief of Police needs to contact the U.S. Government to get training in that area. After all, the U.S. has already stated that the police force is wanting in training. Get my drift?

  5. I can't believe some people are still so naïve in them times we living...guns get in the same way drugs get in most times they come in together...there are few more high powered military firearms either the guys are smart enough and using them only as scare tactics or don't wanna waste d precious ammo...I also understood that the rounds which were found were of a high spec ( italian army) than the ones our police use ( yes our cops have a few slr's)...one of these rounds could easily penetrate 4-5 persons
