Second man charged for firearm

Osbourne Douglas due back in court on Tuesday

Osbourne Wilfred Douglas appeared in Summary Court on Friday, charged with possession of an unlicensed .38 Auto Calibre AMT pistol following an incident in George town on 5 May. 

On that date, Douglas and Roger Antonio Moore were in a car stopped by police officers. Moore, 27, was charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm. Douglas, 25, was charged with wilfully obstructing a police officer acting in the execution of his duty. At their first court appearance Douglas pleaded guilty with the explanation that he was drunk. He was sentenced to 60 days imprisonment (Caymanian Compass, 11 May). 

On Friday, defence attorney Fiona Robertson asked that the charge be put over until Tuesday, 19 June, to be joined with the charge against Moore. She said she was not making a bail application at this time and Magistrate Valdis Foldats remanded him in custody. 

Crown Counsel Kenneth Ferguson attended but did not speak.
