La Horquetta woman, 64, on gun charges granted $.4m bail

A 64-year-old La Horquetta woman was granted $400,000 bail after she was charged with importing firearms and ammunition from the United States without a licence.

Sandra Wright appeared virtually before magistrate Indar Jagroo on Wednesday on charges relating to Customs and Excise officials' alleged discovery on Monday of four guns and a quantity of ammunition in a cargo barrel.

Wright was ordered to report to the La Horquetta police station on Mondays and Saturdays as part of the conditions to bail imposed by the magistrate.

She was represented by attorney Josiah Soo Hon.

In a release on Tuesday, police said at about 8.45 am on Monday, a Customs and Excise officer examined the contents of a cargo barrel and found a sealed bucket among the contents. The bucket was scanned and when opened, contained a black sticky substance.

The release said a rod was used to remove a black plastic bag from the bucket and packages, wrapped in transparent plastic, were allegedly found.

Police said when examined, the contents of the packages were: a Taurus nine-millimetre pistol with two magazines and ten rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition; 23 rounds of 40-millimetre ammunition and seven .380 rounds of ammunition; a SCCY pistol, two magazines, and three rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition; a Glock 43 pistol, two magazines, and three rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition; and a Ruger LCP pistol, one magazine, and six rounds of .380 rounds ammunition.
