JOHN’S HOLE, Tortola, VI – Dion Thomas, the 39-year-old man found with drugs, an illegal firearm and two sets of ammunition during this year’s Festival activities, has admitted to the charges laid against him in the Magistrate Court, at John's Hole, Tortola.

Thomas appeared before Magistrate Giselle Jackman-Lumy, yesterday, September 12, 2018, and entered a guilty plea.

He was represented by Attorney-at-Law, Patrick Thompson and Reynela Rawlins.

It was on August 6, 2018, as officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) were on patrol on the main island of Tortola, when during a stop-and-search operation they uncovered 12.1 grams of marijuana, a XD 45 semi automatic pistol, 10 rounds of .45 calibre bullets and 47 rounds of .9 calibre bullets.

When Thomas—of Hannah’s Estate—made his first appearance in the Magistrate’s court last month, he was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison, BalsumGhut, Tortola.

He faces no less than five years, a fine of $50,000 or both, for illegal gun alone, and is scheduled to return to court on September 21, 2018.
