St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s New) – One man was taken into custody and charged in connection with the seizure of an illegal firearm in St James, on Monday morning, April 17.

During the operation, the accused was seen driving a white Toyota Corolla motor car and he was signaled to stop. He complied and during a search of the vehicle, the lawmen discovered the illegal firearm, a .32 pistol loaded with several live rounds hidden in the console.

The accused was taken into custody and subsequently charged.
