“Investigation is in the US. I have provided them with all the necessary cooperation that I could. They visited me, I had dialogue with them in my office and the investigation is well in the hands of the US and they are making tremendous progress,” Carbon is quoted in the online publication.

He said he has also given the US investigators the assurance that those involved in the matter will soon be brought to justice.

“I can guarantee very shortly, based on my dialogue with the US and communication with the US, that the US is well on their way to ensure that the people who shipped the barrel and those who it was intended for in Dominica face justice.

“The US will take a particular course of action in that, they have already instituted a course of action in that.”

The illegal arms and ammunition originated from the United States and National Security Minister Rayburn Blackmoore had described the discovery as a major security threat.

Police said they had seized five Taurus pistols, one Teltec Pistol, five Taurus Revolvers and one Rossi Revolver as well as a nine million volt stun gun was also seized.

They also found 180 rounds of 7.62 ammunition, 250 rounds of 9-mm ammunition, 300 rounds of .38 ammunition and 100 rounds of .357 ammunition were seized. Additionally, three magazines of sub-machine gun rounds – one seven round, one 12 round, and one 29 round were discovered in the barrel.
