A 25-year old man, who was sentenced to five years imprisonment in his absence for robbery under arms and unlawful possession of a gun and ammunition, was Monday caught and would face fresh gun and ammo charges.
His name has been given as Eon Warde also known as “Killer” or “Lil Boy”
“Before the convict is taken to the prison to serve his sentence, he has to face two additional charges for possession of arms and possession of ammunition,” the Guyana Police Force said in a statement. He was recently sentenced to two years for robbery under arms and three years for possession of arms and ammunition.
Police said the man was arrested at his home at Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden home with one unlicensed 9mm Ruger semi-automatic pistol with seven matching rounds.
He was sentenced in absentia recently for robbery under arms and unlawful possession of firearm and ammunition.
