While operating in Claxton Bay, the police officers discovered one black Glock firearm loaded with a magazine and contained 17 rounds of ammunition. They arrested one male suspect in connection to the findings. 

In due course of time, the ranks of North Central Division executed their exercises on Tuesday at around 11 pm in the St Joseph district. They were accompanied by the officials of the St Joseph Criminal Investigations Department and Major Crime Unit. 

During the anti-crime activity, the investigating officers responded to several reports of motor vehicle larceny and drug trafficking. The ranks managed to arrest a total of 12 persons aged 15 to 41. They were arrested for the possession of Cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, motor vehicle larceny and robbery with violence. 

The investigations of the matter are ongoing and police urged people with any information to come forward and assist them with their enquiries.

Additionally, the Glock firearm is made with only 34 component parts and chambered in 9mm Luger and manufactured with a Slimline frame with a black slide. It has a capacity of 10-round magazine, which made it ideal for concealed carry.
