Andre Fletcher fined for possession of ammunition
WINDWARD ISLANDS and West Indies cricketer, Andre Fletcher, was fined EC$2 000 (BDS$1 481) for possession of ammunition when he appeared before a magistrate in Dominica morning.
He was arrested at the Douglas Charles Airport yesterday evening after 50 rounds of .22 ammunition were reportedly found in his possession.
Manager of the Volcanoes, Lockhart Sebastien, told Dominica News Online the fine was paid and attempts were being made to have Fletcher leave Dominica “to get some rest.”
He said the wicketkeeper did not intend to commit any criminal acts since he was unaware the ammunition was in his carry-on luggage.
“There was no intention of criminal activities,” he said. “He did not realise he had the ammunition.”
Sebastien said the incident will not have any impact on the Volcanoes in the upcoming CPL.
“It could happen to anybody,” he stated. (NB/Dominica News Online)
