KINGSTON, Jamaica— Access and exit at the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Up Park Camp base has been restricted.

The restrictions were put in place after a systems check on the weapons inventory revealed that two M-16 rifles were missing.

Subsequently, movement in and out of Camp has been confined as checks are completed to determine circumstances surrounding the missing weapons. There is also a physical search underway at the base.

"We are currently doing our investigations and will provide an update soon,"Major Basil Jarrett, civil military cooperation officer at JDF, told OBSERVER ONLINE.
