KINGSTON, JamaicaA man who purported to be a law enforcement officer was arrested after he was found in possession of a firearm and ammunition on Lyndale Avenue, Kingston 20 yesterday, Saturday, August 17, the police have reported.

The Constant Spring Police said that while conducting operations about 11:45 pm, a team went to a sports bar on the road. During a search of patrons, a Ruger 9mm pistol with a magazine containing eight 9mm rounds of ammunition was taken from the man's waistband.

He attempted to mislead the police by telling them he is a member of the security forces and a licensed firearm holder. Investigations, however, proved his claim untrue and he was taken into custody in relation to the incident.
