The St Thomas police last night arrested two persons in connection with a semi automatic pistol which was seized during a special operation in the community of Danvers Pen.

The police say the gun is the second firearm seized in the less than 24 hours in the parish.

A magazine containing 13 live cartridges was found along with the firearm.

Three other persons at another premises were also arrested in connection with several other crimes in St Thomas.

The St Thomas police say they will be continuing special operations throughout the parish in the coming weeks to rid the parish of illegal firearms and crime.
