The Security forces have found two more firearms including another high powered rifle in Flanker, St. James.

The seizure took place today during an operation in the volatile community.

That’s according to Civil-Military Cooperation and Media Affairs Officer for the Jamaica Defence Force, Major Basil Jarrett.

No arrests have been made in relation to the find. This is the second high powered rifle found in Flanker since Prime Minister Andrew Holness, declared a State of Public Emergency last Thursday.

That weapon has been linked to at least one murder which took place in the parish since the start of the year.
