Jamaica Crime News, St James: The Cambridge police say they will now be laying criminal charges against a bus operator, who was recently held by members of a military team, transporting several rounds of ammunition from Montego Bay to Cambridge area.
The accused man whose name is being withheld, is said to be a popular bus operator, who drives a Noah bus on the Montego Bay via Cambridge route.
Reports are that during the course of the weekend, a joint military team operating out of Cambridge and Retreat communities, acted upon intelligence received and intercepted a Noah bus being driven by the accused man.
A search was carried out of the vehicle and several dozen rounds of ammunition were discovered hidden in a speaker box in the bus.
