Cracks at ports
THIRTY-TWO GUNS and 1 758 rounds of assorted ammunition. That’s what Government’s one-week gun amnesty was able to net.
But Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith is not very surprised about the total, and will instead concentrate on placing more resources at the Bridgetown Port and Grantley Adams International Airport to stem the importation of illegal firearms.
He made the assertion yesterday at Police Headquarters in Roebuck Street, The City, where the top brass of the Royal Barbados Police Force was on hand to show the firearms which had been brought in between April 7 and last Saturday at midnight.
Griffith said he was way more interested in weeding out any corrupt practices at the two large ports of entry, which might be allowing guns into Barbados in the first place.
