A customs broker was arrested on Friday, March 6, 2020, as he attempted to clear a barrel hidden with several guns and ammunition out of the Castries Wharf.

Nine Glock pistols and three AK-47 rifles were broken down into parts and hidden among grocery in the barrel, including almost 400 rounds of ammunition.

This is the second discovery made in recent weeks by law enforcement officials.

In February at least 2 illegal guns were found similarly in a barrel on the Castries wharf.

Earlier this week, Minister for National Security, Senator Hermangild Francis expressed concern over such incidents and has leveled blame at government officials, claiming they are partly to blame for illegal weapons entering the country.
