KINGSTON, Jamaica — The police yesterday seized an assault rifle and two other firearms among other paraphernalia on Jarrett Lane in Kingston.

The constabulary's Corporate Communication's Unit (CCU) listed the weapons as: a .30mm rifle, which they said was fitted with a telescope, a .44 Magnum revolver and one 9mm pistol.

Among the other items seized were eighteen 5.56 cartridges, one M16 magazine, one AK47 magazine, a ballistic vest and a pair of binoculars.

The weapons and gears were found during a joint police/ military operation, which the lawmen said took place in the community between 11:00 am and 3:15 pm.

CCU said no one was arrested in connection with the incident, which was the second multiple gun find in the island within a 24-hour period.

On Friday, three high-powered rifles and 137 assorted rounds of ammunition were found in Salt Spring, St James on Friday.

Ten people were taken into police custody on that occasion.
