Reports are that in a joint police/military operation in the Ramble Hill area of the parish on Friday morning, the four high-powered weapons were found and seized.
Also seized were bullet-proof vests, ammunition, military fatigues and other related materials some of which are pictured below..
Guns in St James
The find follows the discovery of an illegal AK-47 assault rifle in the neighbouring parish of Westmoreland on Thursday during another major police/military operation in that parish, following the dramatic killing of seven persons, including two children, in a series of vicious gun attacks there on Tuesday.
Security operations have been heightened in Westmoreland since the murderous activities there on Tuesday, while St James has been under a state of emergency since January 28.
Further details are to come on the latest major gun finds in the western parishes.
