A man who was arrested and taken into custody after a sub-machine gun and other ammunition were reportedly found in the vehicle he was driving has been released.
The police have confirmed that Ashton Telemacque was released upon instructions from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
However, according to the police, investigations into the matter are still continuing.
Telemacque was arrested at the Wood Bridge Bay Port on Friday after one sub-machine gun, 24 rounds of 9mm ammunition, four 12-gauge rounds of shot-gun ammunition and one round of .45 caliber ammunition were allegedly found in the vehicle he was driving.
The police said the 27-year-old truck driver was to appear in court on Tuesday but his no-show prompted DNO to begin asking questions.
Attempts on Tuesday afternoon, to get a comment from the DPP proved futile .
