Three men and one woman were arrested after a firearm was sized in the parish of St Catherine, which is under a State of Emergency.

The arrest also came hours after the gun amnesty that was declared in the island came to a close.

Reports from the Spanish Town police are that between 4:00 am and 5:00 am, a joint police/military team conducted an operation in Gulf, Spanish Town.

During the search of a house, one Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol and thirty-seven 9mm rounds of ammunition were found.
