Police arrested a 15-year-old suspect on Friday morning after patrolling in the Hanover Park area. The arrest comes after a random search of the young individual on the corner of Surran Road and Helman’s Walk.

Police found a 9mm Norinco Star pistol and a magazine loaded with 9mm ammunition in his possession.

The illegal items were confiscated and an arrest was made.

The serial number of the firearm is still intact and police investigation into the gun’s ownership and origin is ongoing. The suspect remains in police custody and is set to appear in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court this week.
