A 27-year-old Long Bush man was arrested and charged after police found a revolver and five rounds of ammunition outside his premises, police said on Tuesday.

Kamaul Nibbs is due to appear before Magistrates’ Court to face charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition at the next available sitting, according to the Police Information Office.

With more than 75 firearms and nearly 2,100 rounds of ammunition seized in the past year, Police Commissioner Mark Collins said his force is maintaining pressure in removing firearms from the streets and arresting those in possession.

He stressed, however, that the public’s help is needed to expose illegal entrants and firearms distributors. To contact the police Intelligence Unit directly, call 368-9339.
