A graphic designer was jailed Thursday for being in illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition with which he had been caught more than three months ago.

Dellon Morgan of 149 DÁndrade Street, Newtown-Kitty, Georgetown was sentenced to three years each for being in illegal possession of one Luger pistol and illegal possession of four rounds of 9 MM ammunition without being the holder of a licence.

The sentences would run concurrently so in reality he would only spend three years in jail.

Chief Magistrate, Priya Sewnarine-Beharry also fined Morgan GUY$100,000 on each charge.

Police had arrested him on January 25 at De Abreu Street, Newtown-Kitty with the items, along with a number plate- PHH 4456- in a  black plastic bag.

Three witnesses were called by the prosecution and Morgan was convicted after enough evidence was provided to the court.
