Two men, including a foreign national, are in custody following the seizure of a firearm in a crate that was shipped from an address in the United States, the police have revealed.

Their names have not been released.

The police Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says the crate was seized along Industrial Terrace in west Kingston on Wednesday during a joint operation between the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime division and the Jamaica Customs Agency’s contraband enforcement team.

The police say the men are scheduled to be formally interviewed in the presence of their attorneys before criminal charges are filed against them.
