Australian boat captain arrested for guns, ammo

Australian boat captain Michael Norman leaving court yesterday.

Michael Norman, the captain of a boat, Save Our Seas, was arrested for failing to declare two rifles and 2,240 rounds of 7.62 ammunition. He declared two shotguns and 1,000 rounds of ammo on the Customs and Excise declaration form.

Norman had overstayed his time in Trinidad. When, arrested, he told authorities a South African security firm had ordered the two rifles.

Meanwhile, the scourge of illegal guns continues to terrorise citizens, as a 47-year-old father is shot to death by unknown killers in Arima. His 16-month-old baby was also shot in the face, but survived.
