2 men sentenced for gun and ammunition offences; 18 year old incarecerated

Shane Godoy

Eighteen-year-old Shane Godoy, charged with kept firearm and ammunition without a gun license, was sentenced to five years for each count today by Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser, after she found him guilty of both charges. Godoy, a resident of Aloe Vera Street, was busted with the firearm and ammunition around nine-twenty p.m. on July nineteenth, 2012, by police officers who were on mobile patrol on Peter Seco Street. Godoy was riding a bicycle when the police officers saw him throw a black nine millimeter pistol with five rounds of ammunition in its magazine into a nearby yard.  Godoy gave a statement from the dock but did not say anything to help his defense.  He put himself at the scene and said that he had seen two persons come out of the yard in which the firearm and ammunition were found.
