The Police ranks were at the time on mobile patrol duty in Friendship, ECD where they saw a man, who was later identified as Colwin Barnwell called “Timmo”, a vendor, standing with a black plastic bag in his hand. 

On seeing the Police ranks, Barnwell started to walk away. He was told to “stop”, but instead, he ran away. The ranks gave chase, and he was caught.  

A search was conducted on him and a Glock 17 Pistol (9mm) with no serial number, along with two 9mm matching rounds of ammunition, were found in his pants crotch.  

The suspect was asked if he was a licensed firearm holder, and he said “no”.   

As such, he was told of the offence committed and cautioned.  

He claimed that he bought the firearm when he was in the interior region in Aranka. He was arrested and escorted to Vigilance Police Station along with the firearm and ammunition.  

The items were lodged at the station, and he was placed into custody pending charges.
