Would-be gangs are being warned that the TTPS Southern Division is working to eradicate illegal guns, ammo and drugs.
It comes from Senior Superintendent Winchester, following the arrest of a 24-year-old man for possession of a gun and ammunition in Marabella.
During an intelligence-led exercise on Monday, officers carried out searches at several known drug blocks.
The man was arrested at Church Street, after he was searched and found with a Tangfolio nine millimetre pistol fitted with a magazine containing six rounds of ammunition.
Later that day, the officers searched a bushy area along Charles Street, in La Romain where they discovered a quantity of marijuana.
