Massive gun bust: 59 firearms seized at Freeport, Montego Bay

Five rifles were among 59 firearms seized at Freeport in Montego Bay, St James on Friday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Fitz Bailey said an intelligence-driven operation involving the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Jamaica Customs and international partners led to the massive gun haul.

It was the second major gun bust in Montego Bay in a week, following the seizure of a shipment of 22 firearms at the Seaboard Warehouse in the city last Friday.
