St Michael man facing 15 criminal charges

A 45-year-old St Michael man, accused of having four firearms and 217 rounds of assorted ammunition without valid licences, has been remanded to Dodds prison until November 10.

Edward DaCosta Gollop, of School Lane, Halls Road, St Michael, was not required to plead to the indictable offences when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant this afternoon in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.

The guns, along with 100 rounds of 7.62 calibre ammunition; 97 rounds of .45 calibre ammunition and 20 rounds of .32 calibre ammunition, were reportedly discovered by officers of the Anti-gun and Tactical Response units of the Royal Barbados Police Force when they executed a search warrant at Gollop’s residence on October 9.

The 45-year-old, who is being represented by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim, in association with attorney Sian Liange, is also accused of possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cocaine and cannabis.

Gollop is further charged with laundering of BDS$69, 818 and US$2,461, which were reportedly the proceeds of crime, and of offering the US currency for sale even though he is not an authorized dealer.

    What the AG SHOULD do ,tell everyone that has a gun, to come in and get a license for it. Then the police will do the rest.

    There are some persons who just seem addicted to wrong doing. They can use the same skills and energy to do what is legal but seem unable to choose what is legal. Is it a macho thing?

    Crime is his only occupation, for him it pays.

    QCs and drug money–getting paid.

    Well a fly tell me that some of the legit gun dealers don’t even give receipts to some of the buyers so the guns can’t be traced back to them. And when I hear that one at the top of the list is related to a politician the scales start dropping of my eyes.

    The cess pool deep and wide; dredging ain’t going work. Lord come for your world.
