Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was fined $2,000 yesterday after admitting to failing to pay outstanding rifle licence fees.

Magistrate Algernon Allen, Jr, charged Javon Williams, 38, with possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

Williams was arrested on January 14 in New Providence after police found him with a black Ruger .22 rifle and 120 rounds of .22mm ammunition.

The defendant pleaded guilty to the charges and was fined $2000.

He is expected to pay half of his debt on Friday, with the remainder to be settled in February.
