The Special Patrol Unit of the Belmopan Police department has been hard at work apprehending criminals, making drug busts and removing
dangerous weapons from the streets of Belmopan and surrounding villages. Last night, Thursday 21st January, just before 9 pm, as the
SPU was conducting a mobile patrol in the capital, based on information received, the team searched an empty lot at the corner of Atlantic and Bermuda Street. The unit discovered a black plastic bag with a gun inside, carefully wrapped in a white shirt. The gun, a .32 revolver was recovered and taken off the streets but no one was in the area at the time of the search so it was llabelled and deposited as found property.
