A 15-year-old St Thomas High School student spent the night in police custody pending firearm charges.

The St Thomas police say they were carrying out a stop and search operation along the Prospect main road yesterday when they stopped a bus in which the teen was travelling.

While searching the passengers, the police say they found a home-made firearm in the teen's schoolbag.

The St Thomas police also say they will be conducting more stop and search operations and other activities across the parish in the coming weeks.

They are also appealing to residents to cooperate.
