Man held with US$400,000, automatic pistol

By Ryan Hamilton-Davis Sunday, July 27 2014

A 51-year-old man was yesterday detained by the North Eastern Divison Task Force (NEDTF) when he was found with US$400,000 and an automatic pistol.

According to police reports, members of NEDTF led by inspector Maharaj, were on patrol at about 12.15 yesterday morning when they received information that led them to the Barataria area. The NEDTF intercepted a vehicle with a single occupant, the man of Newalloville, San Juan. When police searched the vehicle, they found a Tec 9 automatic pistol, two magazines, 75 rounds of ammunition, and US$400,000.

The man was arrested and is now assisting police with investigations.

Inspector Wayne Mystar told Sunday Newsday that the Tec 9 found was capable of firing up to 1,200 rounds per minute, and the weapon was highly sophisticated and dangerous. He added the pistol was the 90th firearm found by NEDTF for the year.
