Later that same day, at around 2:30 in the afternoon, PG Police traveled to Aguacate village located a few miles outside of town, where a search at the home of 22-year-old Nicholas Mas yielded a 16 gauge shotgun for which he had no license.

Mas was detained pending charges for the firearm, while the drugs found in PG town were labelled and deposited as “found property” since no owner could be linked to them.crime scene
