The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary’s major crimes unit is investigating a bag of guns pulled from the cold, choppy waters around Cape Spear Monday afternoon.
The RNC’s marine unit, the tactics and rescue unit, as well as the St. John’s Regional Fire department’s high-angle rescue unit were all called to the cliffside near the popular tourist spot Monday afternoon to help with the recovery.
Police found the guns after responding to a call about “suspicious property” in the Cape Spear area around 1 p.m. Monday.
Officers rappelled down the steep cliffs to pull the guns from the water.
Police are asking anyone with any information about the guns to contact them or to call Crime Stoppers.
