Two Men Fined $24,000 on Gun and Ammunition Charges

Radford Lawrence of College Street, Green Bay, and O’Marie Nedd of Potters were each fined $12,000 on separate firearm and ammunition offences in the St. Johns Magistrate’s Court.

Lawrence was fined $5000 for unlawful possession of a firearm and $7,000 for unlawful possession of ammunition.

On March 21, the police executed a search warrant on a property occupied by Lawrence at St. Johnson’s Village and found a modified flare gun, along with several different caliber rounds of ammunition, including three .380 rounds, three 9mm rounds, one .45mm round and a spent .32mm shell.

He was taken into custody and charged.

Meanwhile, O’Marie Nedd was fined $10,000 for unlawful possession of a 9mm pistol and $2,000 for two matching rounds of ammunition.

On Monday, 8 April around 1:40 am, members of the Special Services Unit (SSU) were on patrol duty in the city, when they saw Nedd on Corn Alley behaving suspiciously.

As the officers approached him he ran and they gave chase and eventually caught him with the illegal weapon.

He was taken into custody and charged.

Both men appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Wason on Tuesday, 9 April, and were given three months to pay the fines or serve three months at His Majesty’s Prison.
