Jamaican officials seize guns, ammo hidden in TVs

Jamaican authorities say they have seized high-powered weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition hidden inside TV sets at a Kingston port.
Customs Commissioner Danville Walker says the illegal loot was found in a van at the Industrial Terrace port over the weekend.
Walker said Monday that new scanning equipment helped agents discover the weapons. The seizure was executed by Operation Kingfish, a task force formed in 2003 to disrupt Jamaica's drug trade.
Det. Sgt. Jubert Llewelyn says investigators are trying to determine the origin of the guns and ammunition.
Police have been investigating a long-running weapons and drug smuggling operation between Jamaica and Haiti.
