The police corporal who was allegedly held with two illegal guns in Newlands, Portmore, St. Catherine, last week, has been charged.
Corporal Devon Miller, who is attached to the St Catherine South Police Division, was charged this afternoon by C-TOC detectives with two counts of illegal possession of a firearm and one count of illegal possession of ammunition.
Assistant Commissioner Fitz Baley, head of C-TOC, told RJR News that Corporal Miller was charged following a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Corporal Miller is scheduled to appear in court on October 17.
The 52 year-old cop was arrested on October 2 when C-TOC detectives intercepted his motor car on Myers Lane in Newlands.
An AK-47 rifle with the serial number erased, and 15 rounds of ammunition, along with a Taurus nine millimetre pistol, were reportedly found in the trunk of the car.
It is alleged that he was delivering the weapons to members of the Umbrella gang in Newlands.
A teenage boy who was also held in the operation has been released.
It is reported that a third man, who investigators believe was to receive the guns, escaped.
