According to reports, between 5:15 a.m. and 6:45 a.m., the St. James Police searched a house in Coconut Loop district, Catherine Hall in the parish. Two illegal guns—one 9mm Springfield pistol with a magazine containing fifteen 9mm cartridges, one .38 special revolver and a magazine containing ten 9mm cartridges were found hidden in a drawer.

One man was taken into custody in connection with the seizure; however, his identity is being withheld pending further investigation.

Then, about 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, the Morant Bay Police conducted an operation on Blacksmith Lane in the parish. During a search of the area, one Smith and Wesson .38 pistol containing five .38 rounds of ammunition was found at the root of a tree. No one was arrested in connection with the seizure.

The residents reportedly told the Police that they found the firearm on a church compound. No one was arrested in connection with the seizure.
