St George man remanded on ammunition charge

A 32-year-old Ellerton, St. George man was remanded by a Bridgetown magistrate today after appearing in court on a charge of having ammunition belonging to the Crown.

Troy Henderson Ward was not required to answer to either the count of being in possession of 30 rounds of ammunition or theft of the same. The offences occurred between April 24 and 28.

The rifle magazine which contained the 30 rounds of ammunition allegedly fell from an on-duty Task Force officer during the recently held Reggae on the Beach event.

The general worker who is not known to the court, is being represented by attorney-at-law Lesley Cargill. Ward will return before Magistrate Douglas Frederick at the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on May 27.

    Mr Ward took up the ammunition to turn in to Police, did not know person it drop from was an off duty officer, thought he was a gunman/gangster. That’s all.

    The same thought came to mind regarding the officer’s carelessness!

    I agree, Mark Fenty, an elemant of carelessness was involved on the part of the officer, and gross criminal dishonesty, stealing by finding, and not handing it in to the police, on the part of the offender.

    What a stupid idiot!

    If he was a general worker for me he wouldnt have a job after if the stars lines up and he gets lucky to not serve his entire youth in jail.
