courtA 30-year-old St Michael man was not required to plead when he appeared in court Wednesday on gun and other charges.

Shamar Ricardo James of Murphy’s Pasture, Chapman Lane is charged with having a firearm without a valid licence on June 14, 2016.

He is also charged with entering the house of George Hinds as a trespasser on the same date and stealing one $900 weed whacker; a $600 chainsaw; a $250 power drill; a $900 laptop; a $250 pair of shoes; a $750 jigsaw; a $700 bicycle and a $400 cellular phone.

James is also accused of engaging in conduct which placed Hinds in danger of death or serious bodily harm.

James’ attorney-at-law Leslie Cargill told the court that the virtual complainant had signaled that he was no longer interested in the matter.

However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick said he was not interest in that position at this time, as he was not yet at that stage.

He explained that the virtual complainant would have to approach the police prosecutor with that information.

James was remanded until August 4.

    An extremely strong message has to be sent to indivisuals who arm themselves illegally in Barbados and commit any type of crime . One could only imagine if someone from the residence had been home and confronted this criminal ,instead of a case of theft ,it most like would have been a murder case. There should be no leniency whatsoever for anyone in Barbados that is possession of a fire arm that is unregistered ,or that use one while committing a crime.
    These indivisuals should be made examples of to let others who think it is okay to use a fire arm know that the full force of the law will be brought to bare.There should be no ifs ands or buts
