St George man charged
A ST GEORGE MAN has been arrested and charged with illegal possession of a large quantity of ammunition.
Jean-Marc Cozier, 37, of Market Hill is due to appear at the District “B” Magistrates’ Court today, accused of unlawfully having more than 473 rounds of assorted bullets.
Cozier, who celebrates his 38th birthday today, was arrested after lawmen allegedly found the bullets while executing a search warrant at his home last Friday.
A source close to the police investigations described Cozier’s arrest as part of an ongoing clampdown on shooting clubs and firearm dealers.
Just two weeks ago three executive members of a shooting club were arrested on gun and ammunition charges.
Police recently expressed concern about unregistered firearms and ammunition, noting they had discovered some stunning irregularities during their ongoing probe. (TS)
