Police stated that they were jointly charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, obliterating or defacing identifying marks on firearm, and attempted abduction with intent.
"Their arrests are in relation to the firearm incident last Saturday near the Chalwell Marina in East End, where both George and another suspect received injuries."
Police stated that in this incident that could easily have resulted in even more injuries and possible deaths, both the community and police interceded, bringing about these successful arrests and the recovery of a loaded firearm.
The men appeared in court on Thursday, August 9.
Other arrests are forthcoming in this matter.
