Police in Jamaica say a US tourist has been charged with illegal possession of ammunition after customs officials at an island airport allegedly found a bullet in her handbag.
A Monday police statement says the American woman was about to board a flight when she was stopped by security at Sangster International Airport in the northern tourist town of Montego Bay.
Police took her into custody and charged her with a breach of the island's firearms act after authorities say they found a 9-mm bullet in her bag.
Authorities did not immediately disclose her identity or where she is from. Before her arrest, she was about to board a flight destined for Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
