    Throw away the key!

    Send them right to Westgate. I’d rather pay to have them there as opposed to causing trouble at every event that the public want to enjoy.

  3. T. says:

    As we read this news…may the police service have crossed all ‘i’ s and dotted all ‘t’ s to ensure that the persons and their cronies are prosecuted, and sentenced accordingly. May the sentencing be a precedent and deterrent AND may their families be covered in peace.

  4. Um.... says:

    Hopefully police are able to charge them or others with firearm offenses linked to that weapon.

  5. Miguelito says:

    Nice work, boys. Let’s get those guns outta here

  6. John doe says:

    So stop and search does work.

    • Should’ve stopped and searched all those yachts that came here.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        Yeah , you just know that all those people with more money that they know what to do with it are going to risk it all by bring drugs and guns in for people that they not only don’t know but hate them as well .

        • Positive Pessimist says:

          It’s a fact that yachts bring in guns and drugs. Not all yachts are mega ones owned by the super wealthy of the world like Roman Abramovich. It’s long been suspected that they come in this way. The marine police need to check their hulls under water and not just the insides of the vessels, while they’re at it.

          • Zevon says:

            So you support the concept of Stop and Search then.

            • sage says:

              I support random roadside sobriety stops but the authorities deem it unconstitutional.

              • Zevon says:

                So you would support the idea that police can stop and search amd test for sobriety if driving.
                Great, I think we’re getting somewhere. Even Onion Juice wants stop amd search.

                • Toodle-oo says:

                  She ( sage) doesn’t seem to have learned yet that when stop and search is exercised the vast majority of people happen to have weapons on them or outstanding warrants against them . And that’s not counting the number of people who are driving without license and insurance.
                  I love it when I get stopped at a check point and as I’m reaching for my license ,etc the officers say ‘ Oh , it’s Toodle-oo , go on your way ! ‘

    • puzzled says:

      Probably been keeping an eye on them for some time.

      Nice.

  9. Coffee says:

    Charge them , convict them , imprison them , deny them access to a passport once released . Certain felons should lose the privilege of traveling on a Bermuda passport .

  10. Oh,I see now says:

    Like weeds pluck one out the lawn two more pop up in their place.The Lionfish and weeds are here to stay.

    Sigh…(shoulder shrug)
