Police Commissioner George Quallo says the high-powered guns and ammunition were destined for the criminal underworld, which continues to wreak havoc in the country.

He’s commending the intelligence teams that worked assiduously to make what he describes as a ‘significant bust’.

Commissioner Quallo is also commending the members of the Security Forces and Jamaica Customs.

Meanwhile, he’s encouraging citizens to support the security forces to rid the country of crime and preserve the safety of the nation.
