Two high-powered firearms have been seized following a police exercise on Saturday afternoon in the Morvant district.

The exercise was conducted between 1.30 pm and 5 pm and was spearheaded by Inspector Roger Alexander, Sgt Cornelius Samuel and included Cpl Bharat and Cpl Quashie. It also included other officers from the Morvant Police Station and the North Eastern Division Task Force. During the exercise the officers, acting on information received, made their way to an abandoned house in the vicinity of Celestine Drive, Pelican Extension Morvant, where they discovered one MK-10 sub-machine gun and one .38 special revolver.

The officers also found a quantity of ammunition and approximately 440 grammes of marijuana. The illegal items were all seized, however, no one was arrested as no one was within the immediate vicinity of the find. Police said the weapons will be taken to the Forensic Science Centre, St James to undergo ballistic testing, as the weapons were found a short distance away from where Ryan McIntosh was killed. McIntosh, 26, who was a prospective SRP recruit, was shot and killed on June 11.

According to police reports, McIntosh, a father of two, was walking on Celestine Drive in Morvant when residents heard a volley of gunshots.

When they checked they found McIntosh lying unconscious at the side of the road. He had been shot several times in the chest. Police arrived on the scene shortly after and took McIntosh to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. At the time, officers of the North Eastern Division Task Force conducted a search of the area for McIntosh’s attacker, but they were unsuccessful. Investigators said McIntosh applied to be an SRP, last year, and he recently passed an examination for entry into the service. McIntosh was expected to be sworn in as an SRP later this month, police said. Homicide detectives have not established a motive for his murder.
