A 16-year-old male who was arrested by police on Thursday for possession of a firearm and ammunition will be charged sometime later today.

Acting Assistant Commissioner in Charge of Crime and Intelligence, Milton Desir, said that a .380 pistol and 13 matching rounds of ammunition were found in the youth’s possession.

Police intelligence led to the arrest of the Wilton’s Yard (Graveyard), Castries youth yesterday, Thursday, July 9.

Desir told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the police are going after the persons who might be responsible for the recent shootings in the Castries area.

He said persons have been arrested in connection with some of the recent homicides, but explained that at times there is not enough information to lay charges.

The crime chief told SNO that the police rely on eyewitness and scientific evidence, but noted that it’s difficult for persons to give evidence because of fear of retaliation.

He said that as a result, the police take the information and try to obtain the scientific evidence needed that could lead to charges being laid.
