The offense was committed on 2nd October 2012. Karamo Gould’s apprehension last week came as a result of a planned stop and search exercise that was carried out by the police in various areas of the island.
In the operation conducted on 2nd October, the Delta Squad was able to detain him during their random stop and search. Police reported that the man ran from the officers on duty but was quickly apprehended.
In his possession, said a police statement, was a fully loaded Glock pistol.
