GSU cracks down on trio after robbery

There was a robbery in the city this afternoon. Shortly before two o’clock a trio of young men entered the Belize Farm Center on North Front Street where they jacked a pair of deliverymen, identified as Gladwin Penner and Wayne Humes, of a nine millimeter handgun. It was a brazen robbery on a busy artery. The men escaped but the Gang Suppression Unit was hot on their trails. They soon searched the home of Danika Young, a resident of Conch Shell Bay.  Inside the building at the time were twenty year old Mervin McDonald, nineteen year old Andrew Talbert and nineteen year old Alliea Augustus.  The search resulted in the discovery of a Ruger brand nine millimeter pistol loaded with seventeen rounds of ammunition which was hidden inside a chest of drawers.  As a result all three men, as well as Young, have been detained pending charges of kept firearm without a gun license.   An investigation is currently underway to establish and verify that the firearm found at Young’s home was indeed the weapon that was stolen from the men.  Wallets belonging to Penner and Humes were also recovered from a vehicle which was used in the commission of the robbery.  Inside the vehicle at the time of interception were Rodney Rowland and Ryan Arnold, who the GSU says are linked to the George Street Gang.  They have both been detained pending charges of robbery.

    It’s a shame that worthless lawyers will more than likely defend these criminals. I think GOB should pass a 10th amendment saying that criminals caught with committing these crimes should be denied the right to have legal representation and should be given hard labor. Rt. Hon. George Price said that the would have placed these criminals in work gangs fixing streets and so on. I think that GOB should start doing this. We’ll see how many criminals would want to go to jail if they had to do hard labor…

    Now we can see where the trouble lies. Its not with the people that have license for guns, its the ones that DONT!!! The men that are legal with weapons got robbed of ‘em. What I dont understand is why its so hard to get legal with a gun, near impossible to license a firearm these days. Its the people without license that do the crimes!!!! Make it easier to license, charge the fees that need be charged and DONE!
