St Catherine, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Following a recent attack on a bus driver by students at the Green Island High School in Hanover, the police say they have now discovered a new way which is being used by students to smuggle knives into schools.

According to the police source, following a recent investigation at several schools around the parish of Hanover, it was discovered that these combs, when viewed from a normal perspective, will just be seen as an ordinary comb.  However, on closer inspection, it was discovered that the handles can be disassembled and when taken apart it can be transformed into an offensive weapon.

The police also pointed out that anyone caught selling these combs will be dealt with according to law and also students caught in possession of these combs will be treated as criminals.
