The police last week seized two illegal firearms in a most unusual and bizarre way on the compound of the Falmouth Police Station in Trelawny.
The circumstances leading to the seizure are not only bizarre, but somewhat amusing.
Information gleaned by the Western Mirror indicate that last Friday, a taxi operator picked up two men in the town of Falmouth. The men sat on the back seat. Before taking the men to their destination, he drove onto the compound of the Falmouth Police Station with the intention of delivering a meal to someone in custody.
It was further revealed that the cab driver jokingly said to his passengers that if they had anything illegal to declare, they should do so now. Suddenly, he heard shuffling sounds coming from the back seat, he looked around and saw the two men jumping through the car window and running up the street.
The police, who were made aware of the happenings, searched the vehicle and found a Smith and Wesson pistol containing three 9mm cartridges and a Taurus pistol with six 9mm cartridges.
A search of the area was made but the men were not found.
