On Friday, Guyana police arrested three Venezuelans for possessing unlicensed firearms, ammunition, 66.4 grams of cocaine, and 64.7 grams of marijuana.
State-owned Guyana Chronicle identified the men as Eliyer Vera Venez, Romel Masim, and Jiminez Rojas.
The online publication quoted a police statement saying that officers at Arakaka in the North West district learned three ‘Spanish speaking’ individuals had visited a shop to charge their phones.
The men appeared to have firearms concealed in their waists.
A fourth man, identified as Reny Melville, known as ‘Pony Tail,’ picked up the trio.
According to reports, police went to Melville’s home, searched it, and found a Glock 19 pistol, two Beretta 92 A1 pistols, and a quantity of matching ammunition in a haversack under a bed.
The officers also found suspected cocaine and marijuana.
The police took the three Venezuelans into custody, but Melville escaped while the officers searched his home.
The police are looking for him.
