By Chrisbert Garcia: Acting on information received last week Friday, January 22nd, Punta Gorda (PG) Police conducted a search in an open lot on Far West Street of that municipality, where officers found a black plastic bag containing more than a pound of cannabis (600 grams) and 2 grams of crack cocaine.
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.
