Soufriere man charged for possession of sub machine gun

Lee Anthony

Lee Anthony of Soufriere has been slapped with three gun related charges after he was allegedly found in possession of a sub machine gun during an incident in Loubriere.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Tuesday but is also facing a charge of conspiracy but was not required to plead.

According to court documents, Anthony was in possession of a sub machine gun with the serial number H16014 but was not a holder of a firearms license. It is also alleged that he had in his possession 2 ammunition magazines and three live rounds of 9mm ammo.

Anthony will be brought back to court on October 12, 2012.

He was arrested during a police operation in Loubriere on October 4. During the operation a white Escudo, registered TJ330 with two male occupants aboard, attempted to escape the police but instead struck a pedestrian, a police vehicle and a utility pole before coming to a stop.

Anthony is represented by attorney at law Wayne Norde.

    The question that law abiding Dominicans need to ask is, what was this man going to do with this powerful weapon and how many more such weapons are in the country or on the way to Dominica? According to those in the know, some sub machine guns can fire up to 3000 rounds per minute; can you imagine the terror such a weapon could bring to little Dominica? The police should be commended for removing this gun from the hands of a person who would have been able to do serious harm to Dominicans.

    So wait a second…why is his pictcure plastered on the news headline, but not the picture of the police officer who has made the major headline for illegal weapons found is his home? I would say this is highly unjust, and DNO…as a news source, u need to be objective and FAIR!!!!!

    ADMIN: If the photo is not available, what we going to do? Make one out of thin air. First of all the police have not released the name of the accused, so how we going to use a photo of someone whose name was not confirmed? You will notice that we use photos only after a person has been officially charged by the police or has made a court appearance. Will you help us with the lawsuit when it comes our way?

    That is not from soufriere, y r u guys defending him? He has dangerous weapons that could harm innocent people, dnt care what happen with that police chase but someone got injured, absolutely nonsense…since he cannot conduct himself as a human being he should be locked up…..that goes for all the! Yes I said it.

  22. Justice and Truth

    Not guilty? What was he doing with the gun in his vehicle? When the police told him to stop why did he drive away to the extent of injuring a woman on the sidewalk? If he was not guilty he would have immediately stopped.
    Man you are in big trouble. I hope he was not granted bail. He looks dangerous.

    DNO is that what really happenenned. The talk is that the police vehicle was waiting for them in the wall house junction, hit them deliberately putting the vehicle out of control. They then collided with post and innocent bystander. Reports should reflect fact ??

      Your English is bad. You are encouraging him, saying that he is not the only one. What type of national are you? On the side of criminals?
      Why are you bringing God into it? You are making a mockery of God. He is not Satan. Leave God, the Good, Holy, Pure and Peaceful out of this sinful, wicked and dangerous situation.
      Pray for this man that he may convert and turn to God. They are creating havoc in Dominica. They need to turn their life around and change, repent and worship God. This is what God wants from every one.
      If we are to live in peace, the country must be a safe one, free of hard-core and dangerous criminals.
      Those guys are too young to be involved in such crimes. He should try to go to school and attend some course, be it a technical one and get a legal paying job. Messing around with guns and ammunition and utilizing them will not get them anywhere and by no means Heaven. They will never be happy and have no peace on earth. This is no way to live.

    He certainly is not from Soufriere. He should be in jail all no so. I hope that he was not bailed. These corrupt lawyers and policemen are somewhat responsible for the high level of crime in Dominica today.

    Is he from Soufriere? I do not think so. Get the address straight, Admin. Most probably, he was living in Soufriere, but he is not from Mokobo City.

    I hope there are more charges pending as a result of his arrest, causing injuries to that person,fleeing the police,causing damage to Government and other private properties,just throw the book at this looser, ensure he does not see freedom for a very long time, also put a fartigue on him to reveal where he got the weapon and ammunitions from. there seems to be a gun running operations taking place in Dominica and we must seek to stop it right now,before it get out of control.

        Did Lee have a sub machine gun? if the answer is yes, then did he have a licence to have said weapon? if the answer is no then I don’t need to know hi to know that he needs to know Stockfarm.

        Do we have to know the person personally for us to ask that justice be done. Why should a man have such a weapon if he does not intend to use it. and if he was so above board then she should not be fleeing from the police. Justice should be blind and not predicated on whether we know him, his mother or his nenen. Throw the book at him!!!!!
