(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)ExpandBy ROB GLOSTERSACRAMENTO — During a five-minute span in the third quarter, everyone in the Golden 1 Center knew where the ball was going when the visiting Los Angeles Lakers were on offense. That didn’t mean the Sacramento Kings could do anything to stop Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from putting on a one-man shooting show.Caldwell-Pope scored 17 of his season-high 34 points in the third and the Lakers snapped a three-game road losing streak with a 113-108 win Saturday night against the Kings.Caldwell-Pope hit eight 3-pointers and the Lakers had 17 overall. Isaiah Thomas added 17 points off the bench in his fifth game since Los Angeles acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

AK-47 smuggled out of Police headquarters

first_img…ASP, Corporal under close arrestAn Assistant Superintendent of Police and a Corporal attached to the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) of the Guyana Police Force are among several persons placed under close arrest after a high powered AK-47 assault rifle was smuggled out of Police Headquarters, Eve Leary, on Wednesday. Reports are that a civilian vehicle was on Tuesday evening allowed into the compound without being searched. The vehicle reportedly stayed throughout the evening. However, as it was leaving the compound on Wednesday morning, the vehicle was searched and the weapon was discovered. After the weapon was discovered, the mobile phone belonging to the driver was checked, and it proved that several calls had been made to the ASP.Based on that information, the senior police rank was questioned and placed under close arrest. That very ASP, this newspaper was told, had been fingered in several unprofessional and shady transactions, and had been interdicted from duty several years ago, following the murder of Dweive Kant Ramdass in the Essequibo River.Ramdass was reportedly robbed of millions of dollars.The ASP, who had been a cadet officer at the time, had been accused, along with other ranks, of stealing an undisclosed sum of money from Ramdass, which they had confiscated. During that trial, however, no evidence had been given against the Police ranks, and they were subsequently reinstated into the Guyana Police Force.Meanwhile, the Corporal who has been arrested is the brother of a tattoo artist who had been charged and remanded to prison for the murder of Leelawattie Mohamed, who was gunned down in Tain, Corentyne two weeks ago. The Corporal was reportedly under the radar of several senior officers. Suspicion that his character was shady arose after he had been seen driving in and out of the TSU compound in various heavily tinted motorcars.The Police are continuing their investigations into the smuggling of the weapon, and it is expected that several other persons will be implicated.last_img read more
