On Thursday, September 14, 2023, a team of Police Officers executed a search warrant on the premises of twenty-six [26] Marlick Tisson of St. John Street, Gros-Islet.

The residence was occupied by two persons, Marlick Tisson and a female who has been identified as twenty-seven [27] Akisna George.

The search led to the discovery of a .22 calibre Mossberg rifle and twenty-nine (29) .22 rounds of ammunition.

Neither of the occupants produced a valid license for the firearm or ammunition; as a result, the firearm and ammunition were seized by the Police Officers.

  1. What are they doing with them high powered assault weapons even women are involve in criminal activities..

  2. Slow news day….where are their mug shots? Why hide their facial identity? Posting their faces is way for impactful than a petty 30k bail. When will our legal fraternity understand this basic concept and adopt it?

  3. This is a very poorly written story – confusing to say the least!
    “they were presented before a Magistrate’s Court for the purpose of bail”
    then …
    “they were bailed in the sum of thirty thousand dollars (XCD30000.00) cash, suitable surety, or land documents each.”
    Isn’t bail a “conditional release”? Why then mention “suitable surety, or land documents each”? It should’ve read: “they were granted bail in the amount of …$$$”. A lot of copying and pasting going on in this article.
    The reporter from the RSLPF needs grammar lessons.

  4. To all those who believe the criminals are simply looking for legitimate jobs….these folk had no issues paying/securing their bail… go figure who really needs a job or who really wants to work…you guys can not be serious…

  5. Of all these firearms the police taking off the hands of people with very bad intentions not one ever came back being involved in a previous crime and I don’t think that’s the case maybe the police consificating the weapon is more important than testing the weapon to see where this weapon been before
