UPDATE-Five firearms discovered in food barrel

Skye Murray

A 29-year-old woman has been remanded to jail after she was nabbed at the Bridgetown Port last Thursday on two firearm offences.

Skye Yasmin Lecreta Murray of Perry Gap, Roebuck Street,  St Michael reportedly went to the Bridgetown Port to clear a barrel labelled personal effects. During a search by Customs officers, five disassembled firearms were discovered concealed among food stuff in the barrel.

The matter was reported to the police and Murray was taken into custody and subsequently arrested and formally charged with importation and possession of firearms.

This morning, Murray appeared in the District ‘A’ Court before Magistrate Douglas Frederick but was not required to plead to the indictable offence.

She was remanded until January 12.

      Even if a barrel don’t get physically searched all the way they still have to pass through x-ray scanners and explosive detectors and whats not. The fact that they searched the barrel all the way to the bottom was probably because they knew the guns were there from the scans and took them out to detain her and have her arrested. A lot of the time when they find illegal stuff they are just waiting on the ppl to collect them to arrest them.

    Person who sent it should be charge with trafficking firearms. Federal crime.

    My first thought was she trusted someone she should not have and my first thoughts are usually right on. She needs to talk.

    I guess I don’t understand why someone would just send her 5 firearms for the heck of it. They are costly. Something seems fishy. If she was set up , why not just send one. Not 5

    They need to find out from her who sent the barrel and try to get that person extradited to bim to face chages, if that is not possible at least put out a warrant for his/her arrest so if he/she ever enter bim they can be held accountable.

    That was not a set up. One gun would have done the same job. Don’t need five. The sender can easily be a non-existing person and a false senders’ address. Drugs and firearms in parte can and are popularly disguised and hidden in personal effects such as foodstuff, toys and electronics. They easily pass the untrained eye. A keen customs officer only needs one decipherable part of a part to trigger their curiosity, elaborate computers can identify that part from many angles matches it and ask Carolitta the rest. She knows everything. My point here is I think she knows damn well what was coming for Christmas. The probably thought the port officials and customs would have been too busy to notice an unsuspecting part of a part.

    Checks by custom officials should be more stringent. The less guns on the street the safer for everyone.

    From how the story going HER OWN FRIEND SET HER UP. Hmmmm sad the people we call friends and the girl dont have a clue what going on. Your friend come an tell you they want a barrel in your name obviously you would say yes as its your friend and asking a friend to put a barrel in they name seem fishy hmmm. I would have said no but she looks so soft though.

    Don’t fool yourself, she knew what she was getting into. Maybe she was being paid to colect the merchandise. Lock her up and the person who sent her too.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. Do you know how many guns come in this island?

    Young woman are used to transport guns because it is long thought that it is the men that are responsible. While it may be true that the men are the ones behind it the women are either paid of are accomplishes in the act.

    There is more to this picture than is being seen right now.

    I cannot give you more at this time.

      Troy, you sound like you should be her defense attorney. five guns not one. all in parts at different locations in that barrel. Computer programs are so advanced that they can detect suspicious looking parts and parts of parts from any angle and alert customs officials. Fake senders and senders’ address could be used too. Look man those guns would have been reassembled and either sold or rented for serious criminal activity. Five lives at least just got saved.

    I know her and no one not even me knows what happened! Stop judging people! If she knows or doesn’t it’s not for us to decide her fate!!! I believe she is innocent even though u don’t judge a book by its cover but at this time of the yrr knowing it’s Christmas do u think she would do that to herself as she has a young daughter ???
