The St Ann police say they expect to lay charges this week against a businessman who was held in connection with the seizure of an illegal gun and ammunition.

They say a female companion of the businessman is also looking at similar charges.

The man and the woman were taken into custody yesterday during an operation in Cardiff Hall, Runaway Bay, St Ann.

The police say during an operation on Poincianna Drive in the community, a premises was searched and a Maverick 12-gauge pump action shotgun and the ammunition were found.

They say the businessman and the female companion, who was at the house at the time of the discovery, were arrested and the two are expected to be charged with breaches of the Firearms Act later this week.
