Cat tells Court he paid B.D.F. for uniform

Andrew Talbert

Thirty-nine year old Albert Talbert who also goes by the name of Cat was busted with a B.D.F. uniform last Wednesday when police raided his apartment on Maskall Street. Talbert claimed that he paid a BDF soldier fifty dollars for the uniform. This morning Talbert was taken to court and arraigned for a single charge of unlawful purchase of a military outfit. He didn’t waste the court’s time and pleaded guilty as charged before newly appointed Sherigne Rodriguez. For that charge he was imposed a fine of three hundred dollars which he must pay by November eleventh. But that’s not the end of his woes. In the raid at his apartment police also found a small amount of cannabis for which he was charged with possession and drug trafficking. He pleaded not guilty to drug trafficking but guilty to possession of controlled drugs. The Chief Magistrate has reserved sentencing for the guilty plea until November of this year, when Talbert is due back in court to be tried for drug trafficking.

    What I want to know is will they look further into this case and find out which BDF was involved and be charged! Too many instances with BDF involved and no investigations are made and no one is charged. No wonder everyone believes our country is a FREE FOR ALL!!! No surprise that weapons disappearing. I do not doubt it may continue happening but we will not find out about it no more since the BDF out of embarrassment will cover this information better!
