Two men were arrested in the carpark of a fast-food outlet on Carnival Tuesday with two loaded handguns.

A 20-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, both of Diego Martin, were being held at the Four Roads Police Station up until late yesterday.

A Glock 17 pistol loaded with a magazine containing 15 rounds of 9mm ammunition and a Glock 34 pistol loaded with a magazine containing 15 rounds of 9mm ammunition were seized.

A release from the TTPS said the men were held by officers of the Western Division Task Force during an anti-crime exercise in the Diego Martin district.

Police received information that two men were seated outside the KFC restaurant at St Lucien Road armed with weapons.

Officers led by Supt Peter Dominique and supervised by Cpl Nicholas Nurse were involved in the bust.

Officers went to a parked silver Nissan Tiida sedan which was parked outside the restaurant.

During a search of the suspects, the weapons were found in their possession.

Senior officers said the men were not charged but being questioned until late yesterday.

Investigations are continuing.
