A bailiff from Manchester and a young woman from St Elizabeth have been arrested and charged with illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

The Nain police in St Elizabeth slapped the charges on 26-year-old Romaine Jones, a bailiff of Greenvale district, Manchester; and 21-year-old Kimberley Whyte of Gazeland district, St Elizabeth.

Reports are that about 8:50 pm on Tuesday, September 22, a police team was conducting an operation when they signalled Whyte, who was driving a blue 2008 Toyota Yaris motorcar, to stop.

Both occupants of the vehicle were searched and Jones was reportedly found in possession of a handcuff and a holster.

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery and seizure of a black Taurus 9mm pistol, along with two magazines and one 9mm cartridge.

Jones and Whyte were both charged with illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

A date for their appearance in court is being finalised by the police.
