Cries of vendor harassment


Share post:

IN A SURPRISE daylight raid at Temple Yard yesterday, police found three guns, several rounds of ammunition and a quantity of marijuana at the Cheapside, City location.

Shortly after mid-day, armed police units along with a sniffer dog, also discovered a package of unknown white substance, which is yet to be determined.

The police swoop resulted in cries of harassment from sections of the Temple Yard community who claimed they were being targeted by the police.

However, public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch at a press briefing yesterday evening, identified the firearms found as a .38 revolver, a nine- millimetre pistol as well as an eight-millimetre pistol.
