The public had been asked to assist the police in locating him but warned that they should not confront him if he was encountered.

According to the police, officers attached to the Gros Islet Police Station Criminal Investigation Department, have charged Kent Teddy Gilbert, 32, of Bois D’Orange for the offences of Possession of an AK 47 rifle, Possession of 7 rounds of 7.62 ammunition, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Cannabis and Cannabis Resin.

The charges stemmed from an operation conducted on September 11, 2020, where officers executed a Warrant to Search for Property on a residence at Bois D’Orange.

The residence has since been confirmed to be that of Kent Gilbert, according to the police.

The accused was escorted to the First District Court, before a magistrate Thursday where he was remanded in custody until the November 19, 2020, for further case management.
