The Liberia National Police Ganta Detail on February 13, arrested a large quantity of single barrel rifle ammunition, along with quantities of liquor from a warehouse in Ganta, Nimba County.
The street value and the total quantity of the seized items are yet to be disclosed, but sources from the police station put the quantity of the ammunition at approximately 10 cartons, and the liquor at about 16 cartons.
These items are believed to have come from Guinea, en route to Grand Gedeh where sporadic hunting is said to be taking place.
The warehouse is believed to be a holding point for smuggled goods. Bearing no trademark or service name, the warehouse is situated in central Ganta.
The caches upon seizure were sent to the Ganta Magisterial Court, with the warehouse owner facing court judgement. Meanwhile, the warehouse remains open.
This is not the first time that police have arrested single barrel rounds from the same warehouse, but what became of the earlier case is unknown.
