4, including a minor, charged for ammunition offenses

Kenroy Willoughby

A group of four, including a minor, two brothers and a friend were today before the court to answer to ammunition offenses after they were busted in the city allegedly in possession of three live rounds of nine millimeter ammunitions. They are twenty-year old Kenroy Willoughby, his older brother, twenty-four year old Julian Willoughby, along with A/C Technician, twenty-six year old Nuri Dario Polanco, and a fourteen year old student. This morning, the four appeared before Magistrate Clive Lino and were charged for kept ammunition without a gun license for which there was no bail offered. They all pleaded not guilty, but Polanco’s emotions got the better of him and after he was remanded to prison. He damaged two walls of the court for which he was fined five hundred dollars. He was unable to pay and will therefore serve six months in prison. Allegations are that on Wednesday, December eleventh, 2013, a police team went to Polanco’s home on Antelope Street Extension in Belize City where they found a plastic bag which contained three live rounds of nine millimeter ammunitions.  In a further search, they also found a B.D.F. combat uniform and a Halloween mask believed to have been used in robberies. The adults and minor are to reappear in court on January twenty-second, 2014.
