Loop News  – A 26-year-old US citizen was sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment yesterday after he pled guilty to possessing ammunition in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Michael Allan Grim Jr, of Paoli Pike Floyds, Indiana was arrested on August 1, 2023, and subsequently charged, after one black magazine, containing 20 rounds of 9mm ammunition was found in his luggage, whilst at the Providenciales International Airport.

The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force (RTCIPF) said Grim admitted the contraband belonged to him when detectives interviewed him.

Head of Crime, Safeguarding, and Public Protection Superintendent Dean Holden in a brief statement said: “The laws of the Turks and Caicos Islands regarding the possession of firearms and ammunition is very clear.

The laws are clearly defined as to the requirements needed in obtaining permission for possession of firearms and ammunition when travelling to the TCI.

The laws apply to everyone and will be enforced”.
