A woman has been charged following the seizure of a firearm and several rounds of ammunition on the Coral Gardens main road in St James yesterday (January 12).

She is 26-year-old Tesia Jenkins, otherwise called ‘Indian’, of Bounty Hall, Trelawny.

The Coral Gardens Police say about 4:35 yesterday afternoon (January 12) a police team was conducting a Vehicular Check Point operation along the roadway, when the driver of a taxi with four passengers aboard was signalled to stop.

He complied and the vehicle and its occupants were searched.

Jenkins was found with one Smith and Wesson pistol, a magazine containing two rounds of ammunition and a bag with five rounds of ammunition.

The police say they are continuing their investigations.
