The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said the five men arrested on March 25 in connection with the seizure of a firearm and several rounds of ammunition have been charged with Illegal Possession of Firearm and Ammunition.

The seizure was made along the Lodge main road in Mocho, Clarendon.

The accused are:

• David Harris, otherwise called ‘Blacks’, 25-year-old farmer from Top Road in Pennants, Clarendon

The JCF said: “Reports are that, about 10PM, police officers who were on patrol in the area signalled the driver of a Toyota Corolla motor car to stop. He complied and the vehicle and its occupants were searched. During the search, one Glock 17 9millimetre pistol containing nine 9 millimetre rounds of ammunition was found in the engine of the car. The five men were then arrested.”

The men’s court dates are being finalised, added the JCF.
