ACTING COMMISSIONER of Police Tyrone Griffith is not backing down from his stance on how he believes the guns are entering the island.

In fact, he says they are now “pouring into the country at an extremely high rate”.

The acting commissioner was speaking at the opening ceremony of a symposium titled Fighting Crime: 2016 And Beyond, at the Regional Police Training Centre yesterday.

He revealed that lawmen were doing their utmost to stem the tide of illegal importation and use of illegal firearms. So while 25 guns were seized in 2014, that number more than doubled when 65 firearms were confiscated last year.
