A 62-year-old American man was arrested by Customs with a loaded gun on Saturday afternoon.
Reports are that the man was caught with a loaded gun and was charged with possession of a loaded unlicensed firearm. The man remains in custody and is expected to appear in court this week.
“Once again, I sincerely thank our diligent and dedicated Customs Officers as they continue to work very hard and very long hours protecting our borders,” said Collector of Customs Charles Clifford in announcing the recent arrests.
“Our task is made easier today by our partnership with other key stakeholders, including and particularly the RCIPS and the Immigration Department. The recent joint operation with the RCIPS to capture a US fugitive who was wanted for murder is another fine example of the successes this partnership can generate,” the Collector added.
In another incident on Saturday, a 23-year-old American citizen was arrested by Customs upon his departure at the airport for possession of ganja.
Customs experienced a busy weekend with almost six arrests.
