Man pleads guilty to guns in fridge

Michael Timothy Ebanks pleaded guilty on Friday to importation of handguns and ammunition that came to the island last November in a refrigerator.

Ebanks, 21, entered his plea in Grand Court before Justice Alexander Henderson. Defence Attorney Edward Renvoize said Ebanks did so on the basis that, as far as he was aware, there was one firearm for his use because he feared repercussions from others.

In previous court appearances Ebanks had tried to get the Crown to agree to accept a plea to the one gun, but that had been refused.

The firearms included one AK-47 magazine, one Mach 10 magazine, two Smith and Wesson handguns, a Titan Tiger handgun, a Taurus .45 handgun and a quantity of ammunition.

Ebanks is to return to court on 7 August for sentencing. It is usual for details of the offence to be given at the sentencing hearing.
