Guns discovered at the port; one man in police custody

Dominica News Online (DNO) has been reliably informed that an interception by members of the Customs and Excise Division along with Commonwealth of Dominica Police at the Woodbridge Bay Port in Fond Cole, has led to the discovery of several firearms.

The discovery was made on February 3, 2022, when one individual attempted to clear goods from the port.

The police say one person is in custody assisting them with their investigation.

DNO will continue to follow this story and provide more details as they become available.

      Man Dog, Mr. Mandengo; you know very well that it is your boy Roosevelt Skerrit importing all those guns to into the country to equip his Dominica army for when the war starts in Ukraine; he can ship them out to fight with some modern weapons.

      Remember the Grenada war; when Eugenia Charles sent forty (40) old rusty riffles to Grenada to fight Cuban and the then Soviet Union solders?

      I the kid say dem guns belong to the dat little corrupted black wet back river rat, Roosevelt: dem doh belong to we UWP people:

      I wanda if you Man-dog doh involve eh!

    It’s not the first time that guns have shown up in barrels at the port. Monkey see so monkey do. Let’s wait and hear if anything will come of this episode. I won’t hold my breath because the prior incidents didn’t result in any deterrence. There are so many incidents of the wild west in the country and nothing is reported about the outcome. Sexual harassment of young female by government representative, man allegedly killed by the police whilst in their custody, Choksi allegedly entering Dominca illegally, guns in barrels on the port, drugs allegedly found associated with customs officers, the burning of the public library, police brutality against bus driver, large amounts of suspicious money found at residencies, allegedly harming of Baby Sarah, and on and on. Is there a minister and ministry of national security and other fancy rebranding names, but no action? Who needs more proof that Dominca is a failed state.

      Hold the Police High Command responsible but all the media houses in Dominica are lazy and do not serve the people well. They do no follow-up on important issues. They act like publicists for the male ministry film’s disinformation.

      In any democratic country, without an active media and investigative journalism, DEMOCRACY dies; CORRUPTION reigns; POVERTY is widespread; and the COUNTRY becomes underdeveloped. Don’t you see this is typical of what’s happening in Dominica?

    When our National Security Enforcement organizations do well they should be highly commended. Commendations to the Customs and Excise Decision and the Police.

    Guns are manufactured to kill or maim. Anyone who is caught with illicit firearms and ammunition should be incarcerated for a very lengthy time, 20 years+.

      Don’t hold your breath on effective prosecution. Some very important people well mad the customs officer open his mouth. That is a case cutlass will pass in. I assure you those guns will still get to the intended people. Mark my word. Hopefully the poor customs guy will get to keep his job. Too many crooks in authority in Dca. They taking pages straight of Nigeria’ play book, one of the most corrupt places on earth.

        Corruption is ubiquitous in Dominica. But the level of corruption you are describing is difficult to fathom. Are you trying to be facetious?

        Sometime ago, I suggested to DNO that important news stories have a shelf-life of a few days in Dominica . The media should stop this scattershot approach to the news they publicise. Focus more on the big issues. Once every week, probably on a weekend, return to some issues that have not been resolved. This will keep these significant issues on the front burner.

        Here are some:
        *promise by the Tyrant to exit the $64 thousand monthly palace
        *accountability for the missing $4m CBI funds
        *the crab back case and the gentleman is still not reinstated/compensated
        *illigal issuing of work permits (corruption case)
        *equipment, material and human resources for the Marigot Hospital (opening date)
        That’s just a miniscule part of the iceberg.

          My brodda guns coming in Dca every day. It is alleged that complicity by planted customs officers is unbecoming. Yet they will not or may I say cannot be transferred. Port Officers (a different group sometimes confused with customs) have been quietly complaining but; who cares? Most of the guns owned by a certain group code named “Roseau Central Snipers/ Seals” are more powerful than the police and its also alleged they came via our ports of entry, not back door. Dca in serious trouble.

            Dog Menace, put a mirror in front of you right now. The person you see is the one who’s always writing indecipherable nonsense. You are commonsensically disabled.

    This has always been the trend for some time now. Sadly, it is alleged that the so called Roseau Central Snipers/ Seals brought in hundreds during the last campaign and port , customs officers and police had to turn a blind eyes. Some of you may recall the layou protest where some of the alleged snipers showed up with guns slung on shoulders and police could not do sheeet! Dca is a ticking time bomb and its going to get worse if things dont change soon.
