The Clarendon police say they have recovered several weapons and ammunition from the streets over the past week.

They say acting on information received yesterday, the Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF) searched an abandoned building on Bucks Avenue in the parish, about 9:20 a.m., during which a rice bag was spotted on top of a zinc structure.

The bag was retrieved and a Mac-10 submachine gun was found.

No ammunition was found and no one was arrested in connection with that find.

In another incident over the weekend, the ISCF went to a premises along Stanley Street in May Pen where they found a Browning pistol with seven rounds and a Colt .45 with 19mm rounds.

No one was arrested.

Assistant Commander in charge of ISCF Operations Earl Willis is asking the public to continue to support the police in their efforts to rid the streets of the illegal weapons.
