Gun found in teen’s pants
An 18-year-old has been charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and unauthorised possession of ammunition following an incident at his home on September 16.
He has been identified as Andeno Burnett, otherwise called 'Deno', of Katy Lane, Irwin, St James. Reports from the St James police are that about 5:50 a.m., the police were conducting a joint police-military operation in Irwin when Burnett was found asleep on the verandah of a house. A search was conducted and a Ruger 9mm pistol with magazine containing six 9mm rounds was found in his pants. A search was then carried out at the premises and nine 7.62mm rounds were recovered in the backyard.
Burnett was subsequently arrested and charged in the presence of his attorney. His court date is being finalised.
