By Aaron Humes: Police have confiscated two heavy firearms and ammunition found in a joint operation with the Belize Coast Guard at Southern Long Caye, Stann Creek District earlier today between 4:30 and 11:00 a.m.
A black AK-47 assault rifle along with a magazine containing thirty 04-77 live rounds of ammunition and a plastic bag containing 16 rounds, nine of 04-77 and seven of MK-1982 live rounds was found in some mangroves.
Searches elsewhere led to a .45 pistol, two magazines each containing ten and five live rounds respectively of .45 Auto RP ammunition, a plastic bag containing twenty-three Aguila nine-millimetre live rounds of ammunition; a .40 calibre Smith and Wesson firearm; and three Blazer Smith and Wesson .40 rounds and a JAG .40 round of live ammunition.
