Kalado was reportedly taken into police custody over what appeared to be three high-powered rifles found in his possession.
It was reported that cops apprehended the Dancehall entertainer, whose given name is Eton Gordon, in Lakes Pen, Spanish Town, St Catherine as he was making his way to Portmore for a video shoot.
The police force’s communications arm, the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), have since confirmed that the items are replica rifle guns that were being used for a music video shoot.
“The police made checks and the guns were fake, they were props for a music video,” a representative of the CCU told reporters.
A photograph with the Jamaican entertainer sitting in a police station with three guns on a desk suggested that Kalado was in legal issues with the cops. However, that is not the case.
Kalado was subsequently released.
The Police High Command had issued a statement detailing the proper protocols for persons wishing to use replica firearms in music videos following previous incidents involving local artistes. Entertainers are required to notify the nearest police station and get written permission, the statement included.
Kalado is known for the songs, “Bad Inna Bed” and “Bruk Foreigner.”
