Family in jail for illegal ammo

Cyril Ovado

At around eight o’clock on Sunday morning, the GSU detained an entire family, including a pregnant woman, on Sister Terese Sparks Street after a nine millimeter Smith and Wesson pistol with thirteen live rounds of ammunition were found in a search of Lionel Sampson’s house.  Jane, Lodgrick, Evelyn, Lanicke and Cyril Ovado were all arrested along with Sampson and have been charged for Kept Firearm and Ammunition without a Gun License. They all pleaded not guilty to the firearm offence, but Evelyn pleaded guilty to the ammunition charge and told the court that if she didn’t, there would be no one to take care of her children. But Cyril intervened, asking why Sampson didn’t take responsibility for his own charge. Her plea was not accepted, bail was denied and the entire group has been remanded until October eighth. Meanwhile, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Sampson’s brother, Kenrick Gibson, who also lives at the house but was not there when the weapon was found hidden under the flooring of a store room. The GSU has since found out that the firearm was among items stolen during a burglary at the residence of Alejandro Najaro in San Ignacio on August twelfth. As a result, all six persons will additionally be charged for handling stolen goods.

    Congrtualtions to the GSU unit that carried out this arrest. I love it when things come together. Lock them down all.

    Gangbangers theory is that they are the meanest …….. on the streets. GSU theory should be one of humility……… arrest, shoot or lock them down. Everybody………. father, mother, brother, sister, grand mother, evrybody. Spare no evil.
