Mon, February 12, 2018
This weekend police found a 38 revolver in Orange Walk town - and it may be one of theirs.

ASP Cowo told us how they found the firearm when they searched a man who was acting supiciously on Saturday morning at 3:30.

ASP Alejandro Cowo, CIB - Eastern Div.
"Police were patrolling on Santa Lucia Street when they observed a male person acting very suspiciously as a result they went and approached the person and upon exiting the vehicle and police observed this person placing something between some tyres of a vehicle parked on the street. As a result, police stopped the person and conducted a search on the person but nothing was found on him. As he was informed that he was being taken to where he had been seen where he was hiding something, he managed to escape from police custody. As a result of that, police went to where the vehicle was and police discovered a .38 revolver which was taken to the station and labeled it and at this present are seeing one make person being sought in regards to this investigation here."

"Is there any chance it's a police issued firearm?"

ASP Alejandro Cowo, CIB - Eastern Div.
"I am not sure if its police issued, but we are checking the database to see if it was police issued."

"Because I have heard that perhaps the firearm comes from a police formation out West."

ASP Alejandro Cowo, CIB - Eastern Div.
"The serial number from the firearm appears, but we are checking to see if it's a police issued firearm."

The suspect is still at large.
