Police to use GPS tracking to apprehend suspects

Police are appealing for information regarding the whereabouts of two suspects following Monday’s discovery of three T 56 rifles from a parked car near the Gampaha hospital.

Meanwhile, Gampaha Police have launched an operation to track down the suspects using satellite-based Global Positioning Systems(GPS), Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said.

“The suspects have left the vehicle, which contained the firearms near the hospital. The car is a black hybrid type,” Police said.

Investigations so far have revealed that the suspects had obtained the vehicle from a car hire company in Pannipitiya and changed the number plates.
