POLICE NET THREE WEAPONS IN ROUTINE TRAFFIC STOP

Police pulled over a gold BMW in Smith Bay on Friday night and found three unlicenced guns in the car.
At 11:37 p.m. police noticed the vehicle being driven in an erratic manner in the area of Lake's Chicken Fry in Smith Bay. When they stopped the vehicle, the driver couldn't produce a valid Virgin Islands driver's license.
According to a release from Police Chief Jose Garcia, the driver began to get nervous, causing the police officers to search the vehicle.
They found a 22-caliber semi-automatic pistol and a 25-caliber semi-automatic pistol in the vehicle. The driver was holding a 38-caliber revolver.
Police arrested Delroy Francis of 7-98 Estate Mariendahl, Roy J. Prosper of 56-49 Estate Mariendahl and Troy A. Willock of 7-4 Estate Mariendahl and charged them with possession of unlicenced firearms, Garcia said.
Bail was set at $25,000 for each of the men.
