Samuel appeared before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, August 27. However, his lawyer, Kay Bacchus Browne, requested an extension of time to consult with the prosecution.

Court prosecutor Adolphus Delplesche made no objections.

Samuel, a Redemption Sharpes resident, had the charges laid against him after being intercepted by police in a vehicle that was travelling through the Edinboro area on Monday, August 18.

He appeared before Magistrate Rechanne Browne Matthias on Wednesday, August 20, where he was charged with the possession of a Glock 17 pistol without a legal permit, possession of a weapon with the intent of endangering life, possession of a weapon with the intention of committing an offence, and possession of 27 rounds of 9mm bullets.

It is also reported that upon searching Samuel’s place of abode, police retrieved an Uzi submachine pistol, a shotgun, and over 70 bullets for various types of firearms, – along with bulletproof vests and masks.

More charges are likely to follow as police continue investigations.

In 2013, Samuel was released from Her Majesty’s Prison after spending the majority of five years on remand. In 2012, he had been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to a manslaughter charge levelled against him in the 2007 shooting death of 23-year-old Ishmael Byron.

Carlo ‘Bondo’ Free and Fitz-Allan ‘Wizzy’ Bramble (along with Samuel) were initially charged with Byron’s murder.
