Landscaper fined $19,000 for gun, ammunition, ganja

MICKHELA ALEXANDER (NYLO INTERN) Saturday, August 12 2017

A 34-year-old Marabella man was yesterday fined $19,000 in the San Fernando Magistrates Court for possession of a gun, 17 rounds of ammunition and marijuana.

Elijah Holder pleaded guilty before Magistrate Brambhanan Dubay. Prosecutor PC Cleyon Seedan said that on July 7 at about 7:50 am, police from the San Fernando station went to a house at Agnes Street, Marabella, where they confronted a man and a woman. They asked about a bedroom that was locked, Dubay heard, and the man and the woman said the person who occupied the room was not at home at the time. Seedan told Dubay the police broke down the door and found a black bag which contained 120 grammes of marijuana, a gun and a magazine which had 17 bullets.

The prosecutor said the items were seized and the man and woman were taken into custody. He upon further investigations police released the couple, however, a warrant was issued for Holder’s arrest.

Dubay heard from Seedan that on Thursday, police went to Agnes Street, Marabella and arrested Holder.

Attorney Ainsley Lucky in making a plea on Holder’s behalf, said the defendant is a landscaper and he did not own the gun, ammunition and marijuana, but was keeping them for someone else.

Dubay fined Holder $10,000 for possession of the gun. In default of payment he would serve three years in jail with hard labour.

For the possession of ammunition, Holder was fined $6,000. He would serve 18 months if he fails to pay and for possession of marijuana, he was fined $3,000 or in default of payment would serve nine months in jail.
