Central Division police arrested four men found in a car with high-powered rifles and pistols during an anti-crime exercise on July 6.

At about 10.20 am, police stopped a silver Suzuki Vitara at Mora Street, Homeland Gardens, Cunupia, occupied by four men.

The officers checked the licence plate and, with the help of the Central Operations Centre and the U-Turn information device, discovered the plates were false.

Police searched the vehicle and found three black masks, a black and brown revolver with six rounds of .38 special ammunition, a chrome and black .380 pistol, a black AR 15 with ten rounds of 5.56 ammunition, three cellphones and a pair of number plates.

The four men were arrested and charged with various offences.

The exercise was co-ordinated by Snr Supt Simon, Supt Gyan, ASP Dipchan and Insp Sylvan. It was led by Sgt Andrews and supervised by Cpl Samaroo and officers from the Central Division task force.
