SEA COWS BAY, Tortola, VI: A search warrant conducted by officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force on Wednesday, October, 31, 2018, at a residence in Sea Cows Bay, Tortola has yielded one loaded pistol, close to 40 rounds of ammunition and a quantity of matter believed to be cocaine and cannabis.

The operation was carried out by officers of the Armed Response Team along with the Criminal Investigation Department, the Beat and Patrol Unit and also the Intelligence Unit.

Four charged

Charged this afternoon were Doris Mills, 55, Gregory Alleyne Jr., 29, Alisma Wheatley, 24, and Kervin Collis Rhymer, 35, all of Sea Cows Bay. The charges made were in keeping with possession of unlicensed firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.

The four are due to appear at the Magistrate’s Court and Commissioner of Police Michael B. Matthews lauded the work of his officers, “this is one less illegal firearm on our streets because of the dedicated work of these officers… While it might seem like an uphill battle with our seemingly porous borders, the Virgin Islands is continuing to benefit from work carried out by officers of this Force in seizing firearms, arresting persons keeping these weapons as well as those engaging in the illegal drug trade,” the Police Commissioner said.

Just last week, another youth was similarly charged with firearm, ammunition and drug possession charges following a search of his premises.

    You see this nonsense of trying to charge everybody in a house when they find stuff is exactly why the police are being met with resentment and no respect especially from the ones who have no knowledge of what’s there!

      Ask yourself this question you honestly believe that everyone in that house didn’t know those things were there. We need to stop being ignorant about the fact.

      Simple. Someone is bringing down everyone. The person who knows that this is there stuff admit it and free everyone else.. The refusal to do that then the right thing for the police to do is hold everyone responsible..

      There are plenty news articles where the youths are in a good light but the comments and support under those articles are much less compared to the ones associated with shootings, drugs, etc. Maybe it's yall who pick and choose which ones interest you most.

        That might be true but what the it’s what brought to the public via the media. So that person is only saying based on what the media brings. Maybe the media needs to highlight more postive things.

    And why they only have Alisma photo as if she is the conspirator of it all. I thought this was a picture of a beauty queen contestant (sigh). Every week it’s like our people is in the news both locally and internationally. Everybody want, want, want and will go any height and depth to get it. Doing bad feels good until you reap the bitterness, embarrassment, disappointment and insult it brings to yourself, family and friends who had high hopes of you.
    It is sad. I don’t know if saying sorry is the right words to say right now especially when guns and ammunition is involved. That aint nothing to play around with. Somebody’s life was being held in the balance but God intercepted. It could have been my son, nephew, daughter, father, mother, sister or any family member for all I know. All I can say to everybody is amend your ways, work hard, use your hands wisely and honestly for what you want and not in any deceptive ways. It will catch up with you one day. My heart ache for all the family members and children who have to go through the worry and stress of seeing their loved ones faces all over the media sites and through social media. Hold your head up high and be strong for them if you have to.
