Saint Lucia Police Arrest Male With Illegal Gun Outside Prison

Saint Lucia police and officers of the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF), arrested a male individual Monday morning for possession of an illegal firearm, law enforcement officials have reported.

A senior law enforcement official told St Lucia Times the arrest occurred about 10.30 a.m.

It was reported that the firearm contained one live round of ammunition.

A reliable source told St Lucia Times that law enforcement officers decided to conduct a search of the man after they noticed that he was acting suspiciously.

Just last week a veteran Saint Lucia prison officer was arrested for possession of marijuana and other contraband including hashish, telephone sim cards, razors and lighters hidden in a box of juice.

The suspect had over a decade of service as a prison officer.
