Anthony Myers

A Gales Point Manatee resident was handed down a three-year sentence after he was found guilty of aggravated assault with a firearm. Anthony Liston Myers, originally from Dangriga, was sentenced in absentia this morning before Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith.  Myers committed an aggravate assault upon businessman, Nelson Gallardo on December twenty-sixth, 2016, in the village.  Gallardo was visiting the village looking for a property to purchase when he was approached by Meyers who pulled out a knife when he refused to go fishing with him.  According to Gallardo, he and Myers had no argument or misunderstanding prior to the assault.  Meyers failed to show up for his own trial and the Chief Magistrate ordered a committal warrant for his arrest.
