Two M16 assault rifles missing from Up-Park Camp
The Jamaica Defence Force’s (JDF) Up-Park Camp headquarters in St Andrew was up to late Saturday tight-lipped about the guns that went missing from the armoury there, but it has emerged that the missing weapons are two M16 assault rifles.
Reports are that during a weapons inventory check, there was an anomaly, which suggested that the two rifles were unaccounted for.
JDF sources said the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for missing weapons was immediately initiated.
"This includes restricting movement in and out of Up Park Camp while the checks were carried out,” the source indicated.
