Customs officials seized three guns and 7850 bullets in a cargo shipment in Cap-Haitien from the United States.
Law enforcement officers arrested Wilner Varien Petit Homme in connection with the cargo shipment, whose final destination was Fort-Liberté, a commune 31 miles from Cap-Haitien. The name of the exporter is Marc Maxirene Benjamin. The firearms seized were three rifles and a pistol.
The news comes as, in recent weeks, customs officials have said they would stop screening shipments if their contract lapses.
