A high-powered AK-47, an Uzi Machine Gun and two 9-mm pistols were seized by the police during a raid in Silver Lake on Saturday.

Cocaine, marijuana and ammunition were also seized in the raid which took place at around 6:00 am.

That information was revealed by Head of the Drug Squad Department, Inspector John Carbon, during a press conference held at the Police Headquarters conference room on Monday.

According to Carbon, the search was conducted by members of the Drug Squad, the SSU and task force resulted in the seizure of the following items: 24 rounds of 40-calibre ammunition, 30 rounds of 9-mm ammunition, one AK-47 magazine, one Uzi Submachine magazine and three 9-mm magazines.

2.135 kilograms of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $57, 000 and 2.43 kilograms of marijuana, worth about $4,800 formed part of the seizure.

Carbon revealed that the items were discovered locked in a public convenience

Inspector Carbon said the find is worrying

Furthermore, Carbon stated the seizure is a major concern to the Dominica Police Force.

“It is of major concern to the police because these actually are very high powered rifles which of course are not supposed to be in the hands of civilians…,” he said. “We do not know whether there are more, but we just know these are what we found, so we know that these were out there.”

Meantime, Head of Central and Operations, Inspector Richmond Valentine noted that when the Firearm Act Number 3 of 2011, was enacted, provisions were made for increased fines and stiffer penalties and, “government continues to provide resources which directly influence the effort of the police towards the removal of firearms from the streets.”

“In 2010, the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force established a task force whose mandate, among other functions, were to conduct operations geared at intercepting illegal firearms and apprehending their owners. I am pleased to report that we have realized significance success in that regard,” Valentine stated.

Valentine said the police will implement strategies for a safe environment
Valentine said the police will implement strategies for a safe environment

However, he said the owners of illegal firearms are becoming more brazen as they engage in “irresponsible” and “callous” behaviour involving the use of those firearms.

“From a police standpoint, we cannot and will not allow such irresponsible behaviour by a few within our communities to continue to thrive,” he noted.

He said the Police force will continue to develop strategies and implement programs geared at maintaining a peaceful, safe and secure environment for citizens and visitors to enjoy.

No one was arrested and investigations are ongoing.

The AK-47 is considered one of the world’s deadliest weapons.

The Uzi Submachine Gun is said to be an effective and reliable weapon.

    Dominica which has no airport , no educational values with majority of the
    people leathally ignorant, I\’m not suprise. The island is literally a joke with
    these wanna be drug dealer clowns!

    “No one was arrested ” well whose place was raided? Someone has to know how these weapons were there. we the people of Dominica want to know. Good work officers and there are lots more places to raid. Keep Dominica safe.

    “implement “strategies” for a safer environment. laughable they are. I guess now ANYONE who is an upstanding citizen and community member of Silver Lake who even thinks about applying for a job as a Police Officer of the Comm. of Dominica will definitely be turned down because of where they live. same thing for young men and possibly women from bath estate.

    If You want so much to intercept weapons like these why is it that Mr. Skeritt has failed to build the Coast Guard base in the North of the island ? We know He had a ground breaking Ceremony and monies were Given by the US Government. Why did He close the Capuchin Police Station which had a bird’s Eye view on the channel between Dominica and Guadeloupe?
    Why why why?
    I think this irresponsible behavior is endangering not only the Public at large but especially the Police Officers who have to put themselves in harm’s way !

    There might be an interesting twist to this article. The Police have been under some public opinion pressure concerning their actions during a drug raid at Silver Lake earlier this year. Now they’ve entered that community again to find high-powered machine guns, a significant amount of cocaine and more….yet, no arrests were made. Let us hope and pray that these “items” did not come from the evidence locker and strategically placed and “found” in an effort to sway public opinion and justify the actions of the few Officers who abused their authority during the drug raid a few months earlier. Now, before you place your thumbs down. let me inform you that I am a very strong supporter of the CDPF with very, very close family members holding high positions in the force. With that being said, however, I am fully aware that there are some shady and questionable deeds that go on “behind the scenes”. In any event, the removal of drugs and illegal guns from society is commendable!

    ghetto yutes if you are in a bussiness and you feel the need for this kind of protection you need to get out of it. this is our dominica, nature island of the carribbean not iran of afganistan, these fire arms that were siezed by the police belong in a war zone.why would anyone outside of the millitary want to purchase or rather own a weapon like this?it is a blessing for dominica that these weapons were found, hats off to the police great work keep it up

    Carbon the Uzi, is a far more deadly weapon than AK-47, both of which are Outlawed in the United States; the Uzi is a far more deadly weapon than the AK-47, it discharges more rounds per second than the AK-47. Once you pull the trigger on the Uzi, and it in position; it fires automatically until the last bullet of the hundreds are discharged.

    In any event both are not the kind of weapons which should be allowed into the country. The Uzi is not even utilized by the military, I do not even believe the Israelis who invented the Uzi are still using it.

    It would appear that there are people in Dominica who are professional drug dealers, and they are prepared to use any means to protect their drugs, even the marijuana which some claim are harmless. The question is if we do not manufacture apparels in the country never mind arms, and ammunition, one wonders how these fire arms get into the country? You only found two, there might be more.

    Keep in mind two Uzi are capable of…

      Keep in mind two Uzi are capable of annihilating the entire Dominica police force in a matter of minuets, that tome is troubling and very frightening: How could this be in a place like Dominica, on the other had somebody might be preparing for a pending civil war!

      • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
        February 23, 2016

        If you were not a jackass, and a potential murderer you would not be an Uzi lover, you are an idiot, because bullets flying from an Uzi has no particular person name written on them, they do not only cut down the target, but anything in their way!

        You are a bit of fart that should hang yourself, nevertheless, you might just remain invisible and stink like a decaying dog, because a rope cannot be tied to fart since fart is nothing. Some of you are so stupid, you cannot recognize when your life, and that of others in the country are in dander!

    It may be time to legalize marijuana and let the government sell it so cheaply, that criminals cannot make money in it.

    America is facing the fact that marijuana is not a dangerous drug for adults; like alcohol and tobacco and allows it to be sold to adults in some states.

    February 22, 2016

    Excellent job officers and to keep those dangerous guns off the streets. I am wondering what was their intention to have them and where would they use them.
    One thing, you should have staked out that place and when they came to pick them up, they would be caught red-handed.

    Fantastic job by the CDPF! It is ok to be criticized for doing your job.

    However, you guys need to start hiding your faces during these raids. Only the squad leader and those identified as having to give evidence if contraband is found should expose their faces for legal reasons. I have to say that Silver Lake has become a cancer controlled by criminals. Yes, they are quick to portray themselves a Jardin-patat-laybar but be not deterred. I want to see if someone in the Ministry Bldg have the guts to call again and ask the boss to STOP drug squad from going there and harass the people. I expect to see someone get transferred for going to Silverlake but god is good.

    Again good job officers and stay focused for your service is greatly appreciated by we the law abiding citizens.

    Mr. Carbon, you really got me scared you know. I only see these high powered riffles in Iraq or where ISIS is you know. With our passports in the hands of criminals, who knows if ISIS did not find their way here?

  20. February 22, 2016

    Keep the pressure on Law Enforcement, lots of hot sports are springing up, The mission must be relentless, smoke them out where ever they may be. Clearly it is of greave concern to all Law abiding Citizens, Pace, and tranqulity must be maintained. Great job Comrades, we are praying for the safety of all our Brothers and sisters who are charged to maintain Law and order. Clearly! brothers and sisters, you know what is out there, by the types of Fire power displayed. We need another Gun Amnesty, to give those concern a chance to come clean and hopefully they will surrender their Arms and ammunition drugs if any, following that effort bring out the Brooms# and the #Nets, let the force be with them, cause they will come for us and Create havoc on our little lovely Island. We as a people should never allow that to happen.

    “Carbon revealed that the items were discovered locked in a public convenience.” In a public place? Need I say more? There was a drug bust just recently and it was also said that the drugs were not found on the suspect’s property. So, what are the police really going after? the criminals, or the stash? Always finding drugs and weapon but no arrests. Police should be answering some serious questions – But again, you keep in-house business in-house. Shame on this hardministration. Shame I say.

    I hope no one was planning an ISIS like attack. Better yet, with all these criminals holding our passport I hope a member of ISIS with a DA deplomatic passport, was not planning an attack with these weapons of war, that found a way to get here. FBI should be involved to investigate

  25. February 22, 2016

    Them police can plant these things all over the place, don’t trust them at all, planting evidence by some police all over the world is dirty tactics right now, if it is being done in developed country where they are being caught and send to prison, there’s no doubt that the corrupt police force in dominica, skerrit police is not doing the same, when they catch persons with guns, drugs etc and the evidence go missing, it’s not a local Joe that go in their volts and steal the evidence, it is them same police that thief the stuff, the same way some of them alert the big boys, the drug lords when police is about to bust them, they need to go down to the north, go on bird island to bust all the coke and guns coming out of Venezuela as well, skerrit know the reason why he took the money from the US GOVERNMENT, THE COAST GUARD BOAT WHICH I DRY ROTTING and he did not go ahead and do what he accepted the money for, there was an outcry sometime ago regarding what the police did in silver…

    I can’t understand why it is so difficult for Dominicans to reason and understand that there are proper ways of doing things. Because this bust was made in Silver Lake, it means that in the future innocent residents should submit to any ill-treatment by police? I would think it is these very people that are at risk of danger by the criminals among them, and they, like any normal people want to feel safe.

    Asking the police to conduct their jobs properly and with sensitivity to children and the innocent, does not mean they aren’t welcome to do their job. We can have EFFECTIVE and RESPECTFUL policing at the same time. It is simply through training and accountability. No need for us to keep swinging from one extreme to the other as if there is only ONE way to do things!

      It would help if those people cooperated with the police and not accommodate these gangsters instead. They can only live in the community if the residents allow them to. They must b eradicated.

    • February 22, 2016

      Your P.M. has kept marijuana illegal, and from where I am perched (in front of my computer reading DNO) it looks like his police are doing a great job as far as drugs are concerned.

      People need to be more co-operative in reporting wrong doing and stop holding back information that could help the police. The P.M. is not to blame for crimes committed in the general population. Some of you have a chip on your shoulder as big as a lumber yard always blaming the Prime Minister and his government for problems created by the people at large.

    Gun, coke, weed etc and no arrests? Boy that reminds me of an incident similar to this one that took place in the beautiful village of Vieille case, a few years ago, and the name of some interesting big shots were mentioned you know. Could this be a repeat?

    I will only commend the police when they seize drugs, guns, and arrests individuals that are connected to the crime. In fact these days finding gun is not even important because they took bobbles unlicensed gun and somehow the same gun that was supposed to be a key piece of evidence found it’s way back to bobbles in secret.

    Dominica these days is about being connected with the boys. Once you are connected, you could have drugs, guns, burn GON Emmanuel’s house and evidence will find it’s way out.

    The question is, why do these people feel comfortable calling Q95 to give their displeasure with the police going to silver lake? I always seen people who did their wrong call their big brother to defend them when they see they’re going to get their tale cut. I want to commend the police on staying true to their jobs, remember people who have things to hide will always be the loudest of crying oppression. See who said that the CCTV being placed in town, and the notion of keeping them to combat crimes in the city, is infringing on their rights. Angelo Allen said that, do you know where he works? Yes Q95, you guessed right. Let my comment move, you asked people to give their views on the news at hand DNO.

      What has Q 95 got to do with it? I happen to listen to that radio station but I also welcome cctv on the streets of Roseau. Angelo Allen may be against it but that is his view and I respect it as I respect his view that the police must come down hard on merchants of death. By the way blogger, the word is tail in this case, tale is something else …a story you tell that is make – believe, you should know that!).

      February 22, 2016

      People feel comfortable calling Q95 when the police behaves wantonly in their quest for criminals. No one is asking them NOT to police, but it doesn’t mean they are allowed to just show up and treat anyone any which way. If a student at a school does something harmful, would it suddenly become appropriate for the police to storm the school shooting and terrifying the other students? Simply asking for the police to be sensitive to others shouldn’t be seen as a call for them to stay away.

      They are watching too much TV and do not appear to care for their safety and that of others until it hits home. Then they will commence crying.
      CCTV infringes on their rights if they have something to hide.
      The criminal element has come to that stage, that it is absolutely necessary to install CCTV especially in Roseau. Who do not like it, too bad. They can blame criminals for that. They are the ones who have caused this.

  45. February 22, 2016

    Good job officers. We need to let these criminals know Dominica is a law abiding County and they cannot ruin that for the rest of us. Just some time ago the people of silver lake were angry when the police lawfully came to the community to do the same. What are they saying now. They greedy so they will hide and cover up for the criminals because they give them a little piece of bread, drugs to smoke or a lil pocket change! Good job officer.

  46. February 22, 2016

    It happens again.

    Here is another example.

    Marijuana is for sale. Who is selling it? The same people who sell cocaine and guns! Marijuana is part and parcel of the drug trade.

    Like cocaine and guns marijuana it is harmful and should remain illegal. People who enter the drug scene by fooling with marijuana often go to cocaine and later get involved with guns and crime. It is reasonable to expect all these things to be sold together as they are.

    People who go on a serial binge of violence and murder in North America are often found to be high on the weed, and sometimes it is in combination with
    alcohol and/or cocaine.

    Legalizing any recreational drug does not make it less harmful. It only makes it more available. These substances should never be legal. They belong to the culture of death.

    Money hungry governments will legalize anything they can sell licences for and turn into a tax grab no matter how sinful and harmful it is.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

    • T. W.
      February 22, 2016

      By that analogy you should be advocating for the criminalization of Alcohol and Cigarettes since they cause far more deaths yearly than Marijuana

      • February 22, 2016

        Alcohol and cigarettes should never have been legalized.

        Alcohol and cigarettes were legalized before the research was done and the studies were published. Nobody knew then the health hazards of drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes. Had governments known then what they know now about alcohol and cigarettes it is doubtful if these products would have been approved.

        Both these industries now have a huge number of employees. Governments are making millions of dollars from selling the licences to manufacture and sell these products, and millions more from taxing them. They are not about to criminalize them any time soon.

        Evangelical Christians who don’t drink or smoke are not the ones who are suffering. But we are saddened to see governments talking now about making marijuana legal just as governments before them make alcohol and tobacco legal.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

        Carcon that is such claptrap. Bella donna or deadly nightshade is also a plant created by God. As the name says it is deadly poisonous as is ricin produced by the castor oil plant. There are many other plants, creations of God that can kill you in no time. Marijuana effects your brain because otherwise you guys wouldn’t smoke that horse shit. The least it can do is give you cancer like tobacco. Having said all that, living itself is dangerous because when you live you must die one time but why should you shorten it voluntary?

      • February 22, 2016

        You’re quite right that poisons are found in nature, but the science is very clear that the active compounds in cannabis are not among them.

      “Money hungry governments will legalize anything they can sell licences for and turn into a tax grab no matter how sinful and harmful it is.”

      And as any economist can explain to you, when this happens, the amount of violent crime goes DOWN because that money is going to legitimate local entrepreneurs rather than to foreign drug cartels and the violent thugs who work for them.

      If you think that anything pleasurable is a sin that’s your business, but the thirst people like you have to legislate your sense of morality onto everyone is what’s causing this epidemic of violent crime.

      what I hearing there nuh, you guys are so brainwashed by American propaganda, way back before it was legal all over the world and is a versatile plant it was going to pose a problem to the big conglomerate businesses that is why they spewed the nonsense of reefer madness to start the war on a plant, it has medical, proven medical benefits, as well as recreational, so suck allu salt and continue to drink the koolaid

      If people choose to abuse it and go overboard with it that is their problem, don’t cry down a beneficial plant, people are the problem and what they do with it…

      Again, we need to learn to separate our religion from the bible. The Seveth Day Adventist abstain from drinking coffee because to them it is sinful, although now they saying it is not healthy. However, in the first book of the bible chapter 1 tells us “…and God saw it was good…” So everything God created was good. Today studies show that the same coffee Adventist telling us is not healthy, is very health especially when used without milk and sugar. like everything else, we need to be moderate as taught in the bible.

      I don’t smoke weed or anything though I smoked it before I got converted. personally speaking when I used it I got a high and ate plenty. It never influenced me to do anything bad. Would I encourage my son or friend to take weed? No! I have learned over the years that while coffee cause the heart of some people to bit fast while it makes others feel good. Weed is neither good nor bad but the reason people use it is because the heart craves for what ONLY God gives
