ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Shakeel Pondt, 31, who was found with a gun in his waist, ammunition and cocaine on September 10, 2017 was remanded to prison on December 12, 2017 to await sentencing.

Pondt of Josiah’s Bay, on the main island of Tortola, appeared in the Magistrate’s Court on December 12, 2017 before Magistrate Ayanna O. Baptiste DaBreo and pleaded guilty to the offenses of unlawful possession of explosives, possession of 3.34 grams of cocaine, possession of 207 grams of cannabis, three counts of keeping an unlicensed firearm, and two counts of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply to another.

The court heard that on the day in question police officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and officers of the British Military, while on foot patrol in the Treasure Isle area along the James Walter Francis Dual Carriageway in Road Town, stopped the vehicle Pondt was driving and while starting a search noticed he was carrying the unlicensed weapon in his waist, resulting in his arrest.

At the time the gun bearing man was breaking the 6:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M. curfew. The officers moved to further investigate Pondt and at his home found more guns- a Glock 40 with 60 rounds and a Smith & Wesson 9 with 30 rounds.

Investigators also found quantities of cocaine and marijuana in the confessed offender's home to which he admitted was his.

Pondt is set for sentencing on December 15, 2017.
