St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN); Two women and one man have been charged for the illegal firearm and drugs police discovered in a home in Rawlins Village, Nevis on the weekend.

Brother and sister Dwayne and Natasha Freeman of Rawlins, along with Watisha Browne of Cole Hill, have been charged with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition, illegal importation of a firearm, possession of cannabis and possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

The trio was charged after police executed a search warrant on the Rawlins property early Saturday morning (July 8), and seized a 9mm pistol and eight rounds of ammunition, and a quantity of marijuana.

At the time of the discovery, there were five occupants in the home, three adults and two juveniles; only the adults were detained by police.

The firearm found in Rawlins was the 5th illegal weapon seized on Nevis so far this year. To date, police have taken 28 illegal guns off the streets of St. Kitts and Nevis in 2017.
