A Jamaican has been sentenced in St Vincent and the Grenadines over the illegal possession of an AR-15 rifle and 60 rounds of 5.56mm ammunition.

Linford George Robinson was sentenced on February 12 after he pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne sentenced Robinson to five years and four months for possession of the weapon, and two years for possession of the rounds of ammunition.

He will, however, spend five years behind bars as the sentences are to run concurrently.

Robinson was also ordered deported upon the completion of his sentence.

He was arrested by members of the Rapid Response Unit (RRU) on February 9 during a police operation.
