Someone, somewhere dumped the weapons used in DI khan Jail break. Police found them from someones house. And not arresting him or anybody else for that matter. Not even pointing a finger at anybody{someone}. Good show by the police. The black paint shame [jailbreak] will be washed.

Now LEA's look more cleaner and efficient. Well done.

Great Nation is thankful for your actions.
