PRESS RELEASE 31/01/2015
The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force’s SSU and K9 Prego have recovered a semi-automatic firearm and a magazine of matching rounds of ammunition from the streets of Bird Rock while executing a search warrant on Friday 30 January 2015.
This discovery and recovery is the first for the year following 2014 where 23 firearms were removed from the streets of the Federation. The firearm and ammunition are being analysed by the forensic and ballistics examiners to corroborate suspect identifiers and to determine if the weapon has been used in previous firearm incidents in the Federation. The firearm will also be E-traced to determine its origin and if determined to be from the United States, once identified through DNA or fingerprints, charges both locally and in the United States will be preferred against the suspect.
