Three of the men are from St. James, while the other is said to be from St. Thomas and Parry Town in St Ann.
Acting Head of the St. Ann Police Superintendent David White said about 6:30 pm yesterday, a police team intercepted a white Nissan AD wagon, with the four (4) men aboard, along the parry town main road.
He said the vehicle was searched and a 9 millimetre single action browning pistol with a magazine containing ten cartridges was found.
