Two arrested in Cane Garden, St Thomas

Police have arrested and jointly charged 45-year-old Corey Cleophus Parris of Shop Hill, St Thomas and 23-year-old Shakir Omari Maycock of 7th Avenue, New Orleans, St Michael with unlawful possession of a firearm and six rounds of ammunition.

Parris was reportedly driving along Sunflower Drive, Cane Garden, St Thomas around 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, in the company of Maycock, when he was stopped by members of the Tactical Response Unit (TRU) of the Royal Barbados Police Force.

A subsequent search of the car revealed the firearm and ammunition for which they were arrested and jointly charged.

Parris also faces additional charges of driving without a valid driver’s licence and having no third party insurance.

The two men appeared before Magistrate Wanda Blair in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court on Friday and were remanded to prison to reappear in the District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court on October 24.

      Agreed but if you send the examples for long sentences it will surely put others off knowing it’s not only going be 18 months or so but 20 years .

        Hi Kay,
        Fully agree that the sentences for these acts have generally been too lenient. The Firearms Act (Cap 30) provides a minimum for illegal possession of 7 years (max 15) unless it is a second offense, used in a crime, etc. I don’t recall even the minimum being applied for possession in the recent past. Let’s be honest here, why do you have an illegal fire arm if not with the intent to do something illegal with it?

    That vehicle should left the scene on a TOW TRUCK straight to the Police Station or pound.

    It shouldn’t be a problem sentencing for 20 years. When David Simmons was AG . the punishment for illegal fire was 20 year. I have never heard that anyone received that sentence.
