A man who purported to be a law enforcement officer was arrested after he was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition in St Andrew on Saturday, August 17.
Reports from the Constant Spring Police are that about 11:45 p.m., whilst conducting operations, a team went to a sports bar on Lyndale Avenue, Kingston 20. . During a search of patrons, one Ruger 9mm pistol with a magazine containing eight 9mm rounds of ammunition was taken from the man’s waistband. He attempted to mislead the police by telling them he is a member of the security forces and a licensed firearm holder.
However, police said investigations proved his claim untrue. He was taken into custody in relation to the incident.
His identity is being withheld at this time, pending further investigations.
