March 21, 2017

One (1) Taurus (.357 Magnum) revolver, sixty-eight (68) .357 rounds of ammunition, two (2) speed loaders and a holster.

This was discovered and seized in a piece of luggage that arrived at the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport on Thursday (March 09) onboard a flight from the United States.

Police reports indicate that the luggage was unaccompanied and tagged to a passenger travelling to St. Kitts, but the passenger never arrived in the Federation.

The report also stated that no one in St. Kitts attempted to claim the luggage on behalf of the passenger.

The discovery was made while following routine security protocols for unaccompanied luggage.

The matter is being investigated jointly by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise Department and the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force.

The investigation continues.

This is the 7th firearm to be seized by Police so far this year.
