MoBay shipping wharf under gun watch

Posted by admin on May 2, 2017 in Caribbean news

he Montego Bay Wharf, located in Freeport in the western city, is now is under increased surveillance from the police. Just over a week ago, the police hit the jackpot at the wharf when eight illegal guns one high-powered rifle, a shotgun and six handguns, alongside 1,046 rounds of assorted rounds of ammunition, were found in two barrels, which originated from Fort Lauderdale, in the United States.

“This indicates that our border-security strategy is working,” Senior Superintendent of Police Marlon Nesbeth, commanding officer for St James, said.

“Our aim is to prevent more guns and ammunition from getting into the hands of criminals.”

 TWO GUNS SEIZED

 In a previous find, the police seized two illegal guns at the wharf. Two men were arrested and charged in connection with that find.

Last May, the scope of the gun-smuggling problem in western Jamaica caused a major stir when the Trelawny police intercepted a pickup truck, which was on its way from one of the ports of entry in St James, and found a cache of weapons, which included a rocket launcher, one M16 assault rifle, one AK-47, one sniper rifle, one Intratec submachine, one Uzi submachine, two 9mm pistols, one .45 handgun and two shotguns.

Speaking in Trelawny recently, National Security Minister, Robert Montague, lamented the fact that, despite the police’s recent success in removing illegal weapons from the streets, Jamaica’s porous coastline makes it difficult to stem the flow of illegal guns into the island.

“If we don’t secure our territorial integrity, we could take up a million guns off the streets, two more million is going to come,”(sic) he said.
