St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) — Investigations into the component parts of a firearm that were discovered on Nevis on March 04, 2021, are still ongoing.
That was confirmed on Wednesday, March 31 in a telephone interview with Superintendent James Sutton, head of the Nevis division of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force.

The Police indicated that they would not be in a position to disclose any names as the investigation is still open.
