Dancehall artiste Kalado could again be called in by the police to undergo a second grilling in relation to fake guns that he was allegedly recently held with in Spanish Town, St Catherine

Reports are that the entertainer was in a section of the old capital when he was held by members of a police team with the fake guns, which he told the police were props to be used in the shooting of a music video.

The police said he was taken in for questioning and later released without charge.

But days after the incident, police told Loop News that the artiste is not yet out of the woods.

“We may want to talk to him about a number of things. One of them is how did these weapons end up in the island,” said a detective close to the matter.

The detective declined to disclose more about the ongoing investigation.

Since the incident, a photograph with Kalado reportedly sitting in a police station with three guns (looking like rifles) on a desk, has been circulating on social media.

Kalado is known for a number of songs, including 'Bad Inna Bed' and 'Bruk Foreigner'.

Several months ago, police raided a number of stores in the Corporate Area and seized several fake guns at the outlets.

Following the raids, the police pointed to the dangers of the fake guns being used to commit crimes, especially at night.

Police also hinted at the time that the store owners who were selling the items could be slapped with several charges relating to the seizures, which were regarded as uncustomed goods.

The police said they are conducting further investigations into the seizures.
