Members of the army’s First Brigade, stationed in Santa Rosa, in the Maripi municipality, seized the rounds during a military operation called ‘Oasis 1’. They allegedly belong to a gang operating in the area.
The ammunition was hidden in several blue canisters along with an M-1 rifle, reports newspaper El Espectador. The cache was found due to the information from a network of informers in the emerald mining area of the region.
