Six months prison for possession of two firearms, drugs and dangerous driving

James Grima (44) has been condemned to six months in prison after being found guilty of being in possession of two firearms without the stipulated licence from the Police Commissioner, for having damaged a private vehicle, for dangerous driving, for drugs possession and being a repeat offender.

The Court heard that the Police had been following the drugs case since 2012 and this led to the arrest of the accused in August of the same year. It resulted from Police investigations that Grima used to frequent a farm where baskets were found filled with heroin and cocaine as well as two firearms and an amount of cash.

Magistrate Neville Camilleri, after considering the nature of the offences, the testimony of witnesses, including that of a psychiatrist among others who said he had monitored Grima since 2008 and that after his arrest he had embarked on a better path, condemned the accused to a minimum of six months imprisonment.
