Yesterday evening, Metro Police members were given a tip off that there might possibly be firearms and ammunition in a school ground in Hanover Park. Metro Police made their way to the Parkfield Primary School and searched the grounds. With the help of a member of the public they found the rifles and ammunition hidden in a drain.
Spokesperson for the Metro Police Nowellyn Petersen says “on investigation and as they actually searched the Parkfield Primary School for the rifles they found one shot gun, two hunting rifles, forty-nine 9mm ammunition 61 hunting ammunition.”
Petersen also said in the light of the current increase in gang related violence and activities, the Metro Police welcome this find.
