Dominican held with 128 rounds of ammunition

Police have arrested and charged 62-year-old Dominican national Pat Thomas with unlawful possession of 128 rounds of ammunition.

On Thursday, April 13, Thomas, who is also a US citizen, arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport on a flight from the United States.

During a search of his luggage, customs officers discovered the ammunition concealed in two pairs of socks.

Thomas appeared before Magistrate Douglas Fredericks in the District ‘A’ Court today and was remanded to prison to reappear in the District ‘B’ Court on April 19.

    I guess the gun in Dominica must’ve run out of bullets , and he had to go for more , since he can’t order them off of Amazon.

    …also a US citizen – I guess that explains it

  9. Concerned Citizen April 15, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    Nice comment… Way to generalize… But the demand apparently was on the very small (compared to the US) and beautiful island of Barbados, which is very sad… I’m glad this was caught. The airport security in the US outgoing airport (Im assuming, as it states out of the US) that let this through should have great penalty for this horrible error on their part, too.

    He should be locked up for being stupid enough to bring them through the airport and not locked up for just having them. Stupid stupid.

    Will he be deported to the USA or to Dominica?

    • Richard Johnston April 16, 2017 at 7:00 am

      Send him to Texas where he will be celebrated a hero.

  18. Tony Waterman April 15, 2017 at 8:47 pm

    @Donald Trimp!!!! International Law says Last Known COUNTRY of Residence. so he should be sent back to the USA, and if they want to send him back to Dominica, their choice, but we should NOT get involved in that.

    We made that Mistake with the Cuban, twice would make us Fools.

  21. John Paul April 15, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    What amazes me about this story is that He passed through security checks in the USA and boarded a flight and the ammo was not detected

    Question how did he passed TSA security in America.

      Maybe since he was taking them out of the USA and not bringing them in, they notified Barbados and let us deal with him?

    • Angus Benn
      Angus Benn April 16, 2017 at 11:43 am

      You not supposed to travel with firearms explosive and bullets. Any thing that can put people lives in danger. If he did get caught in the US he would be going to jail for a very long time.

    • Tom April 18, 2017 at 1:48 am

      It would be of concern to the TSA if it was in his carry on luggage. Amunition in checked luggage is not a threat. Remember in the US the constitution gives every citizen the right own guns without infringement. So many of the comments here reflect a lack of understanding. What is all this righteous igdignation about? He could be a hunter, this is just much ado about nothing

  23. Milli Watt April 15, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    customs hold he how come them ain’t hold the rest that on the street now…….this Caribbean on the slide real bad.

  24. Curious April 16, 2017 at 12:07 am

    @Angus Benn…..Good question

  25. Justin April 16, 2017 at 2:45 am

    Was his destination Barbados or Dominica? You are allowed by the airlines to carry guns and ammo in your checked luggage, guns must not be loaded and you must inform the airline. I am guessing he did not have a permit to import the ammo.

  26. jrsmith April 16, 2017 at 4:59 am

    This is a very serious situation and also , this now exposes so much about our customs and the big old (US) with they technology… something stinks here this man was either handed up or, him and his protectors slip up………………………
    People , no, no, you dont just jump on plane with that much ammo , may be 20 -25 yes and thats a serious risk but 127 hits….
    We all should start feeling sorry for him , because he is done they are going to deal with him in the (US) Dominica is nothing to do with this , this matter is between barbados and the (US) and if our people is clever enough he should be dealt with as soon as possible and handed back to the (US)…
    this is serious exposure … this has a long way to go…………

    • Truth April 18, 2017 at 2:04 am

      They cannot deal with him in the US when he did not commit a crime in the US. As a matter of fact it is not a crime in the US to own guns and amunition unless you are a convicted felon.

    Ok RBPF should be interested in who that ammunition was intended for among other information but knowing how amateur things are done in Barbados don’t expect that to happen.He will probably pay a hefty fine to broke treasury and that will be it.

  29. Jennifer April 16, 2017 at 9:32 am

    All this poor guy demonstrates is a part of the matrix. A perfect EXAMPLE to the others of how not to be. Mind you all the 1% loaded up. The elites loaded up. The main governments got their moab’s to drop onto countries. It is the same way Barbados is never to own an atom bomb under the big brother American rules. Give you a disease, then give you a shot of the same disease. Victims of instigation and the system, that’s all we are.

  30. Debbie April 16, 2017 at 10:51 am

    How did he get through the TSA that is to show how slack they are in the U.S.

  31. Mack April 16, 2017 at 10:54 am

    Well there are plans to get rid of the current government in Dominica, by whatever means necessary. We need to contact the Dominica Police and let them speak with this gentleman, it look like the tip of the ice burg to me an old Investigator????

    Maybe he has a licence firearm and forgot to remove them from his suitcase.

  33. jrsmith April 16, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    This is nothing to do with (Dominica ), he has dual citizenship, but if he entered barbados on his US passport he is done for …….

  34. J. Payne April 16, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Dominican as in Commonwealth of Dominica, or Dominican as in Dominican Republica?

    • Jonah Banks April 17, 2017 at 7:44 am

  38. Triumph April 17, 2017 at 9:56 pm

    Those are the ones who you guys respected in those days because he used to be a police man home. Hope you see now they are no good and they usually are no different from the murderers in the street.i hope he goes to jail for a very long time. At list that will make the streets of Dominica 1percent safer because someone was going to be dead sooner or later. They left the country for quite a long time and instead of coming to do something good. No they choose the bad. Deport him back to America send him back to Trump.

  39. Timbuktoo April 18, 2017 at 2:23 pm

    Everyone for themselve God for all of us. Thats why he died not for a perfect man but for sinners. When u digging holes make sure u dig two. Today is mines tomorrow is yours.not even tomorrpw the next minutes. So long ppl time will tell. We all have friends and family.

  40. Luvcovaalting April 18, 2017 at 2:35 pm
