Top Cop calls for all hands on deck to deal with gun smuggling

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - THE Commissioner of Police, Hilroy Brandy, has called on all stakeholders to assist in combating the flow of illegal weapons into the Federation, following the discovery of gun components on Nevis.

    While providing an update on the case to SKNVibes News, Brandy called on citizens and the various law enforcement agencies to police their respective surroundings to ensure that weapons are not smuggled through the Federation’s porous borders.
    On March 4, a joint raid at a local courier facility on Nevis had netted gun components on the island, but only limited details of the operation were released by the police.
    However, Commissioner Brandy told SKNVibes that four men have so far been charged and are currently out on bail.
    He explained the Police Force is vigorously working to put the case together and is hopeful that the matter would shortly be brought to court.
    Describing the importation of the gun components as a challenge, Brandy stated that the small percentage of firearms that the police have removed is only a minor part of a larger number smuggled into the Federation.
    Brandy lamented that a number of the firearms are coming through the legal ports of entry, and he is calling on the relevant authorities to be vigilant.
    “The police alone cannot do it, so we are asking for other agencies to be vigilant to protect our borders,” the Top Cop added.
