Darrington Lauriano

Just before nine this morning, twenty-one year old Darrington Lauriano was nabbed by police on Princess Margaret Drive. Based on intelligence, the Quick Response Team along with Special Branch personnel stopped and searched Lauriano in the parking lot of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Lauriano had on him a black and grey suitcase and a brown and black knapsack and was en route to San Pedro. But it appears that there was not only clothing inside the bags. Inside the suitcase and wrapped in separate black plastic bags between a red sweater, police discovered one hundred and ninety-six grams (a little less than half pound) of weed.

But also found hidden in the clothes was a nine millimeter Ruger brand firearm with eight live rounds of ammo. Police processed the bag in Lauriano’s presence and he was arrested; the weed and the firearm were bagged and labeled by the police. Lauriano and his belongings were then placed in the back of the police pickup truck and taken to precinct three where he was processed and charged late this afternoon for Kept Firearm and Ammunition without a Gun License and Drug Trafficking of Marijuana.

 

Last Tuesday, Lauriano was shot to the left shoulder around nine-thirty p.m. on Sandpiper Street in the San Juan Area of San Pedro Town, as he headed home. Lauriano Junior reported to police that after he had been shot, he saw a gunman coming from behind, but hid in a nearby yard to evade his attacker. San Pedro police said that they believed the shooting was as a result of drug activity in the island.
