Police say they seized a sub machine gun and ammunition and detained two women and seven men in connection with the seizure in Westmoreland, Tuesday (May 8). At the same time, they have in custody six of ten men who they had listed as persons of interest and wanted in Westmoreland.
This, as they have stepped up operations in the parish following the murder of seven people there last week.
The Westmoreland police report that about 6:00 am Tuesday, May 8, an operation was carried out in the Solas area of Frome where an Uzi submachine gun along with two magazines and twenty-four 9 mm cartridges were seized. Two women and seven men were detained during that operation.
