Assistant Commissioner Clifford Chambers, head of Area One Police
US law enforcement agencies are assisting local police to track down the persons behind the guns and ammunition which were seized on Monday at the Freeport Wharf in St. James.
This was disclosed by Assistant Commissioner Clifford Chambers, head of Area One Police, in an interview with Radio Jamaica News.
ACP Chambers said the police were called to the wharf about 6 o'clock Monday evening to inspect a container that was perceived to be irregular.
Nineteen handguns, six rifles, 13 pistol magazines, nine rifle magazines; six Glock speed loaders; twelve Glock back straps; and 474 assorted ammunition were seized.
ACP Chambers noted that this is the second major seizure at the wharf in recent years, as a similar find in 2018 led to the prosecution of gang leader.
