Phillip Samuels

Twenty-eight-year-old Phillip Mass Samuels was slapped with firearm offences when he appeared in court today. The Belize City man was charged with kept firearm, and kept ammunition in connection with an incident on March twelfth. It is alleged that Samuels was found in possession of a chrome and black handle nine millimeter pistol loaded with six live rounds of ammunition that’s supposed to have been stolen.
