Police seized some half a dozen firearms, including a high powered weapon, during an early morning operation Wednesday in Vieux Fort, sources say.
Officers also seized several rounds of ammunition.
As a result of the operation, a so far undisclosed number of individuals are in police custody.
Over the past few days, the police have been conducting a number of operations in the South of the Island.
Last week, officers searched the area around the fisheries complex at Vieux Fort and arrested an elderly female.
This after the police discovered a quantity of drugs.
