By BBN Staff: On Wednesday, Hopkins police conducted an operation in the Sanctuary Reserve area of Maya Center, Stann Creek District.
There police found eight marijuana plants measuring 4-6 feet in height.
A further search of the area led to the discovery of a 20-gauge shotgun and a brown bag containing nine live rounds of 20-gauge cartridges, which were hidden in some nearby bush.
No one was in the area at the time of the discovery so the firearm and ammunition were labelled and deposited as ‘found property’ while the cannabis plants were uprooted and destroyed by fire.
Information to BBN is that police will conduct more operations in the area, which has reportedly become a haven for criminal elements.
