Chief Magistrate Sonya Young sentenced the Clare Valley Resident to one and a half years’ imprisonment for having in his possession nine rounds of .38 special ammunition on September 27 at Bamboo Range, Soufriere. He was also sentenced to four and half years for having in his possession one firearm without a license.

The 26-year-old was also sentenced to two years’ imprisonment each for having in his possession a .38 special revolver and 13 rounds of 12-gauge ammunition. The charges are expected to run concurrently.

The police report read in court stated that officers from the Rapid Response Unit (RRU) were on duty at Bamboo range when they saw a vehicle approaching. The vehicle was summoned to stop and a search was conducted. A black plastic bag was found at the back of the vehicle. It was opened in Allick’s presence and he said: “Officer is fu me protect meself.”

Allick, however, told the Court that he had no idea that the bag contained guns. Magistrate Young told him that he knew what he was doing and the weapons were there to kill someone. A mask and gloves were also found in the plastic bag. Allick has three previous charges. (VM)
